Latest developments indicate that the five-month old ASUU strike, may be called off over the weekend.
A source who pleaded anonymity, told newsmen that the NEC meeting, which was suspended indefinitely because of the death of Late Professor Festus Iyayi, a former president of the Union, maybe be reconvened on Saturday.
He said that Iyayiâ€™s death brought shock to the Union, especially as he was on his way to official assignment and the ASUU had to put the meeting on hold to honour him.
â€œThere is strong indication that the NEC meeting will be reconvened on Saturday,â€ he said.
When asked if the strike will actually be suspended, he said: â€œI think so, judging by reports from the Monday congresses we held simultaneously, the union may suspend the strike on Saturday or Sunday.â€
