ASUU suspends NEC meeting indefinitely over Iyayi’s death...

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has suspended its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting initially scheduled to hold at Bayero University, Kano, on Wednesday. The meeting was suspended indefinitely.
The ASUU National President, Nasiru Fagge, stated this on Wednesday afternoon.

The meeting was suspended because of the death of Festus Iyayi, a former ASUU President, who died in a car accident on Tuesday on his way to the NEC meeting.

Mr. Iyayi was involved in a ghastly auto accident allegedly caused by the convoy of the Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada.
Several members of the executive council from various universities across Nigeria were already in Kano for the meeting.

ASUU has been on strike since July 1 and the NEC meeting was to deliberate on the resolutions of various chapters of ASUU on whether the strike should be suspended or not.
