Following the suspension of the one month six days old strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the Education Rights Campaign, ERC, has congratulated the Union, saying the suspension is a welcome development.

Congratulating ASUU for a battle well fought, the National Coordinator, ERC, Comrade Hassan Soweto, also saluted Nigerian students for their understanding and solidarity.

His words “Though we are happy with the suspension, however we note the conditional nature of the suspension. This means the ball is back in the court of the Federal Government to demonstrate sincerity and commitment to implement the spirit and letters of the new agreement.

“If ASUU should have any cause to resume the suspended action in future on account of Federal Government’s negligence, then Nigerians should and would know who to hold responsible.

“ As far as we are concerned, the democratic management and improved funding of the public university system, starting with the release of the balance of the university revitalization funds is innegotiable.”
