ASUU Meet With FG Today Over Strike

The Federal Government   is expected to  hold another emergency meeting with the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday  in a bid to end  the ongoing strike in  public universities.
The last meeting between the two parties took place  on November 15. Despite the meeting  lasting  for six hours,   the strike was not called off because no agreement was reached.
Public universities lecturers began their   strike on November 5, saying the Federal Government had failed to implement the  key areas of focus contained in the MoA.
The issues still under contention are the  funding of public universities, earned academic allowances, salary shortfalls and pension matters.
The President of  ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, in an interview with our correspondent  on Sunday confirmed  the union’s meeting with the Federal Government would take place on Monday ( 26/11/18)
Ogunyemi said, “There is supposed to be a meeting tomorrow evening (Monday). It all depends on the way government approaches it. If they invite us further, we will go. It also depends on what they put on the table. We met them briefly  and we agreed to meet on Monday (today).
“We met with the Minster of Education (Adamu Adamu) on Thursday and it was a short meeting. We have given them our terms. I am not representing myself but those who have given us  a clear mandate and we shall abide by the terms.”
The   Federal Government’s delegation led by the  Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige,  in their meeting with  ASUU leaders  on   November 15  appealed  to the union to consider  the interest of the students and end the strike.
