The Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Allied Institutions and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities have stopped their strike through the Joint Action Committee (JAC).
Just after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) followed suit, the unions went on strike in March.
Comrade Mohammed Haruna Ibrahim, the president of SSANU, who confirmed the news, informed Daily Trust that the strike had been put on hold for two months.

He claimed that the unions’ move was made to give the federal government time to carry out all of the agreements agreed. On Wednesday, August 24, the strike will be suspended.
”We have only suspended the strike for 60 days. This is just to open a window for the federal government to fulfill all its agreements with us. We will resume the strike after 60 days if the government fails on its promises.”
