UniAbuja lecturers suspend strike

The Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Abuja branch, Mr Ben Ugheoke, on Tuesday in Abuja said the body has suspended the strike by its members.

Ugheoke told the News Agency of Nigeria in a telephone interview that the decision was taken on Monday during a congress held at the institution’s mini-campus.

He said, “We resolved at the congress to suspend the strike after signing an agreement with the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Micheal Adikwu.

“The announcement on this will be done Tuesday morning.”

The ASUU branch embarked on the strike on June 2, following what it called “Federal Government’s refusal to release the White Paper containing issues affecting the institution”.

The Federal Government had on July 16, 2012 constituted a Visitation Panel to resolve issues affecting the institution but the White Paper of the report was yet to be released.

Ugheoke said the signed agreement involved the release of the White Paper, and that the Vice-Chancellor has assured the union that he would work towards ensuring its release.

He, however, said the recall of students to the campus was a decision to be made by the University Senate.
