Again Federal Government, ASUU meeting on strike resolution cancelled


The meeting between the Federal Government and the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU on the resolution of strike has been cancelled for the second time.

Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mr. Charles Akpan, announced the postponement in a statement on Tuesday.

He said the consultation on the latest offer by the Federal Government to striking university teachers was still ongoing.

But ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi said the union’s leadership did not agree on any meeting with the government.

ASUU has been on strike since March this year to drive home its demands.
