Strike: FG meeting with ASUU ends in stalemate


The meeting between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday in Abuja ended without any agreement.

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President, disclosed this while speaking to newsmen after the closed door meeting, NAN reports.

Ogunyemi said though negotiation was still ongoing to find lasting solution to the ongoing strike, the meeting has so far being inconclusive.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting, which started at 5 p.m. at the Federal Ministry of Education, was to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike.

The union embarked on the strike on November 5th over the funding of Nigerian universities and an alleged plan by the Federal Government to increase students’ fees and introduce an education bank.

Ten days after the declaration of the strike, the first meeting between the Nigerian government and the lecturers ended without resolution of the dispute.

The union is also demanding the implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) agreement by both parties in 2017.
