ASUU Strike 2013 Update: Strike is Finally Called Off

The ASUU strike has finally been called off as of December 17.

The strike, which began in July, was called off by the union at its National Executive Committee meeting that ran very late on Monday night.

The news broke early Tuesday morning.

The meeting was to look over an agreement signed by union leadership and the federal government last Wednesday, December 11.

After months of negotiation, the agreement signaled the end of the strike would come soon. Dr. Nasir Fagge, the union’s president, promised a decision would come within a week after signing the agreement.

The presidency has already been told of the development, a source told the Daily Times.

“Since Christmas is already on the way, we believe most schools may wait till January before resuming,” the source said.

The Daily Post confirmed that the strike is called off.
