Following the ultimatum, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila had invited the ASUU President, the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed; and Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, among others.

At the end of the last week meeting, the government promised to pay ASUU this week.

However, on Tuesday, Osodeke told The PUNCH that the Federal Government had not commenced payment and had not reached out after the meeting.

He said, “Since that meeting, we have not heard from the Federal Government. But our ultimatum still stands. We gave the government three weeks and one week has passed; they are left with two weeks.”
