The academic staff union of university (ASUU) has agreed to participate in the forthcoming general elections.
The agreement was reached in a meeting between Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and officials of the union in Abuja.
Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, had on Thursday raised concern that the bulk of election duty staff are drawn from the universities.
"We are determined to ensure that (election) processes are not affected by the unions industrial action. ASUU is a critical partner to the commission in delivering credible elections," he had said.
The development comes after the university of Ibadan (UI) chapter of ASUU told INEC not to rely on students or lecturers for the general elections.
