The union summoned an emergency meeting for Thursday to decide on ending the strike.

Usually, ASUU branches nationwide will vote on a decision; the results will then be transmitted to ASUU’s National Executive Council for final ratification.

ASUU’s deliberations come after the National Industrial Court and the Court of Appeal ordered the union to return to the classroom.

Many expect the union to call off the strike, which will allow students of public universities across the country to return to the classroom.

Counsel for ASUU, Femi Falana, in a chat with Channels Television on Monday had hinted that the strike is about to be terminated.

“The legal advice that I will give to my clients is confidential,” Mr Falana said. “But I can assure you that the strike will soon be called off.”

Also on Monday, the union met with the Speaker of the House of Assembly, Femi Gbajabiamila.

“We hope that working together, in the next few days, we can put an end to this particular imbroglio in the Nigerian educational system,” ASUU’s President, Osodeke, said at the meeting.
