BREAKING: ASUU suspends strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has announced a conditional suspension of its nationwide strike.
The union announced the suspension at the end of a meeting with top government officials in Abuja on Monday.
ASUU declared a nationwide strike on August 13, citing the failure of the government to implement the 2009 agreement it reached with the union.
The union had asked the government to pay its members their earned allowances and to increase funding for universities.
It also protested non-payment of earned academic allowance (EAA), removal of universities staff schools from funding by the government and non-implementation of provisions of the 2014 pension reform act with respect to retired professors and their salaries.
