ASUU Strike Continues After Lecturers' Meeting With FG Ends In Deadlock

While speaking with journalists after Monday’s meeting between the federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the National President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, said negotiation is ongoing and the meeting would continue at a later date.

According to PREMIUM TIMES, the meeting which started at about 5 p.m. at the Federal Ministry of Education, was to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike by the university lecturers who had embarked on the strike three weeks ago.

“All I can say for now is that negotiation continues and the meeting has been adjourned to a later date,” Ogunyemi said.

Earlier on Monday, a reliable source privy to the meeting told a correspondent that the discussions still centered on the contentious areas in the 2017 MoA.

He said, “The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, travelled out of the country and so, the negotiations have been taken over by the education minister and the permanent secretary. They are reviewing the MoA and it is a very meticulous process.

“The issues are about funding for revitalisation of public universities, earned academic allowances, salary shortfalls and pension matters. The two parties will try to look at the middle grounds in the issues. But you know that ASUU cannot call off its strike without going to consult in its National Executive Council members.”
