It was gathered that the union would soon call off the strike and the decision would be reached after a meeting with its members.

Meanwhile, the ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, said the National Executive Committee of the union will review their decisions based on the new commitment by the government.

According to him, it is only after that meeting of the ASUU leadership that the union would announce its position on the ongoing strike.

It has been over two months since the union went on strike following the inability of the government to keep to an earlier agreement.
