ASUU Strike: Lecturers Meet With FG, Fix Another Meeting For Monday



The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Friday held a closed-door meeting with the representatives of the federal government.

The meeting, held at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment in Abuja, was to allow the lecturers brief the government on the outcome of the congresses by various chapters of ASUU.

Although the National Executive Council of the union reportedly met late Friday night to collate the stance of the various chapters, officials have kept sealed lips on what the decision of the lecturers is; until Friday’s unannounced meeting.

Samuel Olowookere, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Labour and Employment told Premium Times that that there will be another meeting between the government and ASUU by 3 p.m. on Monday.

The lecturers have been on strike for one month over several issues including non-payment of due salaries and allowances and poor funding of universities.
