ASUU To Announce Final Decision On Monday As Sunday Meeting Begins 12 Midnight

Uramah Media

The much anticipated decision of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on whether to commence an indefinite strike action or offer another ‘lifeline’ to the Nigerian government will be taken at another meeting of the national executive council (NEC) members scheduled to commence by 12 midnight on Sunday.

The meeting, which is tagged “NEC for NEC”, is an extension of an ongoing two-day meeting of NEC members which has been reviewing the positions of each of the branches of the union on the sensitive matter of whether to declare industrial action or not.

The NEC meeting, which commenced on Saturday at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, was a follow-up to earlier public engagement and sensitisation congress meetings of the various branches which necessitated declaration of lecture-free periods across the various campuses.

The union had earlier hinted it would communicate its decision to the media on Monday.

A source among the leadership of the union on Friday informed some journalists to be prepared for an impromptu briefing by the union on Monday.

Meeting venue changed abruptly

Meanwhile, the ongoing NEC meeting, which had commenced on Saturday at the Ade Ajayi Auditorium in UNILAG, was abruptly relocated to Tayo Aderinokun Lecture Hall near the university’s guest house on Sunday over what a reliable source described as the fear of bugging of the auditorium by secret agents of the Nigerian government.

“You know the matter at hand is very sensitive and ASUU has been very careful. So it got information that the venue had been bugged over night and had to relocate to another venue to continue its meeting on Sunday. It is a serious thing. But the final decision will be taken by midnight today (Sunday),” a member of ASUU who does not want to be quoted told our reporter on Sunday evening.

The source added that it was clear that the majority of the members of NEC had opted for the declaration of an indefinite strike action, citing what he termed the poor commitment of the government to the union’s demands.

  1. In the first paragraph of the opening statement, you wrote “National Executive Council (NEC) members scheduled to commence by 12 midnight on Sunday.”

    The correction that needs to be made is in relation to time. When it’s still 11:59PM:59 seconds or 23:59:59 seconds, it is still the previous day but when it is 12 midnight which is appropriately 12:00 AM, it is morning and the beginning of a new day.
