The scheduled meeting held behind closed doors between the federal government and the academic staff union of universities (ASUU) has again ended in a gridlock as both parties failed to reach an agreement on the issue of improved funding of universities. The meeting was held at the Federal ministry of education, Abuja, on November 26.

 

 

ASUU embarked on the strike on NOV 4 due to the poor funding of universities and continuous break of promises by the federal government. The union’s National President, Biodun Ogunyemi told reporters that talks have stalled and that both parties would continue discussions at a later date.

 

In his words:

 

 

“AIl I can say now is that negotiation continues and the meeting has been adjourned to a later date.” Mr Aminu Suleiman, Chairman of the House of Representatives Comitee, expressed his concern over the lingering nature of the strike and has urged ASUU officials to call off the strike while the talks are ongoing. The government has stated through the Ministry of Education, its true intentions to end strikes in the sector despite the lingering issue of poor funding.
