The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, is currently meeting behind closed doors with university vice-chancellors trying to resolve the crisis.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on strike for more than six months.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Professor Abubakar Rasheed, and Emeritus Professors Peter Okebukola and Nimi-Briggs all attended the meeting.
All of the vice chancellors and pro chancellors of federal universities were also present at the closed-door meeting.
“I will like to ask respectfully that the gentlemen of the press excuse us so that we can start our deliberations”, Adamu Adamu said.

Earlier, the minister lamented the failure of ASUU to call off its strike despite interventions by the Federal Government.
ASUU had on Monday, February 14, 2022, embarked on a strike following what the union tagged as the failure of the government to meet its demands.
It could be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government on Saturday insisted on no-work-no-pay following the lingering industrial action of the ASUU.
