ASUU Strike: FG-ASUU meeting continues today

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) President, Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie said last night that talks between ASUU and the Federal Government will continue this morning “to iron out a few outstanding issues”

He stated this at the end of yesterday’s (Monday) meeting which lasted for about four hours.

“We have had deliberations, you know those of you who were here earlier will know that we have been here for more than three hours. We have looked at the issues. We have made some progress. We are likely to continue very early tomorrow morning where we will finish. When we finish, we will make a statement.” The ASUU president said.

He also added that the strike was not over, but that the issue will be resolved “very soon”.

“We are talking about one thing: the good of the education sector in Nigeria. There are no adversaries in this matter. There are no winners. There are no losers. That is why we should work together.”

Minister of Education Professor Ruqqayyatu debunked media reports that she had promised an end to the strike on Monday saying she was misquoted. “What I said is that it is our hope and desire that based on what we were doing so far, the strike would be called off. But if it doesn’t, I didn’t say that it will. I am not ASUU; I am not representing ASUU in any way.”

  • The issue at hands is not only to call off the strike but issue of BOKO HARAM, especialy in kano. What would students of BUK do even if the strike is called off?

    Are they calling off the strike today? Let the ASSU and the FG consider the poor people children who cannot afford the fees for private Unviversity where those who called themselves ASSU/FG Executive put their children that the Strike does not affected. May GOD bless you as you consider the poor masses.
