Clement Chirman, the National Publicity Secretary of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP), has confirmed that the body has called off its 10-month-old strike.
The strike which began in October last year, was suspended during the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union held on Saturday morning.
Chirman said all striking lecturers have been asked to resume work on Tuesday next week.
These new developments come just two days after Ibrahim Shekarau was sworn in as Minister of Education and he held a ‘fruitful’ meeting with ASUP’s leadership.
The ASUP NEC consists of all chapter (polytechnic) chairmen of the union and the national executives
