The Academic Staff Union of Universities has ended its one-week warning strike.

The Union went on strike over the non-implementation of a 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.

The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi on Tuesday, November 22, confirmed that the industrial action is over, and urged lecturers to  return to work.

He said: "We are making progress, especially with the intervention of the Senate. In the next one or two meetings, if we are able to get a clear path to the matter, we will avoid elongation of the strike action.

"I have been receiving these reports that ASUU says strike continues. No. The strike ends today (Tuesday). All lecturers are to go back to work Wednesday morning."
