The leadership of the Academic Staff
Union of Universities, ASUU, National
Executive Council, weekend, met in
Kano. The secret meeting,Vanguard
gathered lasted from Friday night to
Saturday morning. However, at the end of the meeting,
lecturers were not forthcoming with
the outcome, which sources say was
borne out of the promise made to
President Goodluck Jonathan by the
union to inform him of its decision before going public. It was learnt that the NEC meeting
which attracted ‘fair representation’
from over 50 universities was held at
Mambayya House. Vanguard gathered
lecturers were divided on the issue of
suspension of the over 5months strike. The Universities lecturers were
conveyed to the venue of the secret
meeting in two Coaster buses, secured
by the union’s Kano chapter, in order
to avoid the attention of the press and
public. A competent source close to ASUU told
Vanguard in Kano that “we still have
40 – 60 percent situations here after
the meeting; the resolution from the
north favours the call off while their
peers from the South strongly support the continuation of the strike”. According to the source, “however ,
we were able to take a middle course
that would be pleasant to Nigerians,
but that will not be discussed now at
the public domain until we meet Mr.
President in line with our last discussion”. Effort to reach Dr Nasiru Fagge, the
national President of ASUU was
abortive as he failed to pick up calls.
