ASUU Strike: Varsities May Resume Monday After Emergency NEC Meeting This Weekend

Latest developments indicate that the five-month old ASUU strike, may be called off over the weekend.

A source who pleaded anonymity, told newsmen that the NEC meeting, which was suspended indefinitely because of the death of Late Professor Festus Iyayi, a former president of the Union, maybe be reconvened on Saturday.

He said that Iyayi’s death brought shock to the Union, especially as he was on his way to official assignment and the ASUU had to put the meeting on hold to honour him.

“There is strong indication that the NEC meeting will be reconvened on Saturday,” he said.

When asked if the strike will actually be suspended, he said: “I think so, judging by reports from the Monday congresses we held simultaneously, the union may suspend the strike on Saturday or Sunday.”

    Agree with me that Asuu generally was responsible for the murdered and brutal death of professor festus Iyayi not Idris Wada, I Don’t knw what this laziness lecturers was planning for We youth of the nation since July 1st,becos of the mismanagement and sefishness heart that digged off and shutdown the Educational sector of this country without checking the damaged part of their unglorious action.Many Nigerian university students may not come back to school anymore after this strike,some have died while trying to get something Done for survival,some have engaged in robbery and now dwelling in the prison yad,Some of them start getting pregnant as a result of long term Asuu strike,others get on to uninspiring schemes,to keep body and soul together all in the name of Asuu strike.proff Iyayi wasn’t the only soul that shed blood for Asuu strike anyway their are numbers of students too and many home out there in pains and In agony of their children and love ones which death has taken away but all this people wouldn’t have come across this untimely death hadn’t be Asuu has yielded..I there by described ASUU as a fly in the ointment for the devlopment of this nation’s youth future.
