Imo State University, Owerri, on Monday, announced that it had pulled out of the seven-month-old strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASSU).
The university, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Ralph Njoku, asked its students and staff members to resume on Tuesday, September 20.
According to Njoku, the university decided to pull out of the lingering strike in the interest of the students and staff of the institution.
He said that the statement announcing the development had been sent to radio houses and would be aired repeatedly from Monday afternoon.
“Lectures start on Tuesday. We are doing this in the best interest of our students and staff. We are not only pulling out of the ASUU strike but also asking everyone to return to school,” the statement added.
