According to Vanguard News, after a marathon meeting which lasted for about three hours on Monday evening, the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has failed to resolve their differences about the ongoing nationwide strike declared by ASUU.
The meeting which was targeted at re-opening negotiation over the demands by the union for improved funding of public universities across the country could not come out with any resolution.
Vanguard reported that the meeting started about 5:30pm and ended exactly 8pm. It was also reported that both parties could not achieve much as they resolved to continue the discussion at a later date.
The ASUU team was led by the National president of the union, Abiodun Ogunbiyi while the Federal government team was led by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.
“The meeting will continue at a later date. We will continue from where we stopped. We will continue at a later date.
“We have started the discussion, we are continuing and the discussion will continue on a later date. That is all I can say for now. You will get to know when we resume discussion,” Ogunbiyi stated.
