By The Citizen


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka has voted to suspend the ongoing strike once the arrears of four months salaries are paid.

At a meeting on Monday as a prelude to Wednesday's national congress in Kano, the branch said it was resolute about the issue of salaries which accumulated during the strike.

The branch president of the union, Dr Ifeanyichukwu Abada, said  in Nsukka, Enugu State, that the strike would only be called off in the university if the salaries from July to date were paid.

Abada said the lecturers were not expected to resume lectures without the salaries.

He said that if the national body failed to insist on the salary caveat, the UNN branch would continue with the strike until otherwise.
