Universities in Nigeria have been crippled for months since the different staff unions of the Nigerian institutions have been on strike.
However, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) have decided to suspend their ongoing strike.
On Saturday, Muhammed Ibrahim, President of SSANU, disclosed that the union decided to suspend its strike to give the government time to fulfil its promises.
The decision was made after a meeting with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, alongside the executive secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Abubakar Rasheed, at the minister’s office in Abuja.
SSANU and NASU embarked on a strike in March 2022, shortly after the commencement of the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The minister had earlier revealed that the government met the demands of ASUU except one, which President Buhari declined to grant.
