ASUU Strike : Federal Government , University Lecturers Begin Meeting In Abuja ( See Details )



The meeting on resolving issues involved in the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is ongoing in Abuja.

The members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is currently in a meeting in Abuja, with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and other federal government officials in a bid to resolve issues involved in the ongoing strike.

According to Premium Times, while speaking on the meeting, Ngige said; “We are here to smoothen the rough edges so we could move forward.”

Two contentious issues the minister said the meeting will address are earned allowances for the lecturers and revitalisation fund of universities.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, at the meeting, expressed optimism that the two parties will reach a compromise on the issues so that universities can reopen.

On his part, President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, said once the contentious issues are resolved, the union’s leadership team will reconvene its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting for further discussions.

We’ll be bringing you more details later.
