The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old strike conditionally.
The union decided to suspend the strike during a meeting of its leadership that started on Thursday night and lasted into the early hours of Friday.
The meeting was called by the union to determine its next line of action after its state branches met over the Court of Appeal ruling last week.
The Court of Appeal had ordered ASUU to suspend the strike before its appeal of the ruling ordering lecturers to resume work can be heard.
It is expected that the president of the union will release a statement on Friday, declaring an end, the eight month long strike.
