As ultimatum given by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to the government to implement its demands or face another round of industrial action ended on Sunday, the former has said Nigerians will know its position within 24 hours.
ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, told Vanguard on the telephone that the union would declare its position shortly after consultations with branches had been made.
He said the meeting held by the principal officers on Sunday resolved to proceed on consultation with branches as prescribed by ASUU’s laid-down rule, after which a position would be taken.
The consultation which he said was ongoing, would be through within the next twenty-four hours, after which the union would come out with its position.
On the outcome of the meeting the union held Sunday, Osodeke said: “It is the principal officers that met yesterday (Sunday).
“Following our procedures, we are going to the branches to consult them and then we will come to take final decision.”
On how long it would take the union to come out with its position, he said: “Immediately, you will hear from them today (yesterday).”
Recall that the ultimatum given by the union for government to accede to its demands or face another round of strike ended on Sunday. (Vanguard)
