See 2018 ASUU Strike Update Here.
Here is the latest update on the ongoing ASUU strike. The meeting between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday in Abuja has ended without any agreement.
According to the ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who made this known while speaking to newsmen after the closed door meeting, said negotiation was ongoing and the meeting continued.
It was reported that the meeting, which started at 5 p.m. at the Federal Ministry of Education, was to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike.
Some of the demands by the union are that the Federal Government should nominate another chairman of the government renegotiating team of the 2009 ASUU /Federal Government Agreement to replace Dr Wale Babalakin.
Other issues bothering the union are non-payment of Earned allowance, funding of revitalization of the Nigerian universities, implementation of needs assessment report, poor funding of state universities, among others.
Those present at Thursday’s meeting were the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Mr Sonny Echonu, and Dr Isa Fagge, former ASUU President. (NAN)
