The strike of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has entered its fourth month, and lecturers of the government-owned universities will on Monday hold a referendum to make some decisions.

Local chapters of the Union in each campus have invited members for the crucial meeting during which they will be briefed on the outcome of the 13-hour long meeting ASUU Executives had with the President Goodluck Jonathan and other officials of the Federal Government.

The briefing will be followed by voting in favour or against the continuation of the strike.

Though some members of the union are still sceptical about the promise of the government, there are indications that the referendum will favour ending the strike.

According to a union member, referendum is always conducted before a strike is embarked upon or called off.

The ASUU embarked on a strike to demand the implementation of the 2009 agreement with government on July 1.
