ASUU, what next?

From the information I gathered from the media on Thursday, the
Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Federal Government have
signed a Memorandum of Understanding which brings us closer to the end
of the over five months old strike. But my question is that how long
will it take ASUU to hold its next National Executive Council meeting
so as to suspend the strike and why can't the meeting hold within 48
hours after the signing of the MOU so Nigerians and the affected
students can know the way forward? Procrastination is what I call it
and it is why, as Nigerians, we like pressure cooker plans due to time
wastage. The remaining days in 2013 should not be considered as gone
due to the Christmas and New Year holidays. I don't even know why that
should attract the attention of Nigerian students who have spent over
five months on a compulsory holiday. The rest days in December can
change a lot in the lives of some students or institution.
