ASUU Strike Update: FG-ASUU Meeting Ends In Deadlock, 27th Nov.
The Meeting by the Federal Government and leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities yesterday Monday 26th, 2018 also ended in deadlock just as the first meeting. Botht parties were unable to reach a middle ground. This implies that the strike by the lecturers continues as the meeting could not conclude on whether ASUU should return to work or not.
A reliable source privy to the meeting told newsmen that the discussions were centered on reviewing the contentious areas in the 2017 MoA which was quite a meticulous process.
ASUU President, who initially didn’t want to speak to newsmen after the meeting later said in a brief session with journalists after the three-hour talks, that the negotiations with the government would continue at a later date.
Attempts to get the Minister of Education to speak concerning the outcome of the meeting failed as he could not be reached.
