Strike without end: ASUU suspends NEC meeting following death of former president

by Stanley Azuakola

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) meeting scheduled to hold on Wednesday at the Bayero University Kano (BUK) has been suspended indefinitely by the National Executive Council (NEC).

This is as a result of the death of ASUU former president, Festus Iyayi, who died on Monday in a car crash on his way to the NEC meeting.

The ASUU National President, Dr. Nasir Fagge, who made the disclosure, while briefing journalists in Kano, said the union deemed it necessary to suspend the meeting following Iyayi’s death.

Fagge, who described Iyayi’s death as a great loss to the country, said the deceased was a strong pillar of the union.

He said, ‘’You (journalists) have to bear with us because we are in a mourning mood over the loss of one of us, who was a strong pillar.”
