ASUU Stike: ASUU Branches Commence Voting Today And Wednesday

The various branches of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) are to commence traditional voting today, Tuesday, the 11th of October, and tomorrow, Wednesday, the 12th of October 2022.

The decision of the various branches will be transmitted to the National Executive Council for final decision.

The votes are expected to determine the outcome of the ongoing strike that has plagued the Nigerian educational system for 8 months and counting. The Union had embarked on a strike on Monday, 14th February, 2022 over what the union described as the failure of the government to meet lingering demands of the union.

 

 

According to reports from The PUNCH, a highly-placed source within the NEC disclosed this in a chat with one of their correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday the 11th.

“We got the directive after the meeting with the speaker yesterday (Monday). The intervention was timely. Branches will vote between today and tomorrow after which the decisions will be convened to the NEC,” the source said.

Further reports from The PUNCH say that the new development comes on the heels of the meeting with the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, who called several meetings between the union and the side of the Federal Government.

The lead counsel to ASUU, Femi Falana, SAN had also explained to The PUNCH that the strike would be over in a few days.
