Outcome of ASUU and FG Meeting
Today’s meeting (1st February) between the Federal Government (FG) and leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ended without a resolution of the strike by the university lecturers. However, the meeting was then adjourned to February 7th.
The meeting which started few minutes to 12 noon held at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Abuja. The meeting ended at 3:15 pm
Prior to Friday’s meeting, at least eight other meetings held between both parties.
The national president of the union, Biodun Ogunyemi, said the union will be unable to communicate the outcome of the meeting with journalists until “I communicate with my members”.
According to him, ”we have another set of information for our members and we will like to hear from them before saying anything.
“We have discussed on all the areas but we need to tell our members first. It was the feedback and we have a set of information for our members,” he said.
Mr Ogunyemi said the meeting has been adjourned till next week Thursday.
In his address, the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, said all the demands of the unions have been met.
“Well, the meeting has been protracted and we are getting to the end of the tunnel and we will soon see the light,” he said.
When asked about the federal government’s response to the demands of N50 billion made by the union ”to demonstrate its commitment to the revitalisation of public universities, in line with previous agreements with them”, Mr Ngige said the government cannot afford the amount.
”But we will offer something reasonable which they are taking back to their members,” he said.
Both parties refused to give any specific details of what was discussed in the meeting.
