Again, FG, ASUU meeting deadlock

One month after it embarked on an industrial action, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is not returning to the class room soon as the meeting between the leadership and Federal Government has again ended in a deadlock.
The meeting which took place at the Ministry of Education failed to resolve the issue raised by the union which includes reconstruction of the committee to renegotiate the agreement between the union and government among others.

The union embarked on the strike on November 4 over the poor funding of Nigerian universities and non-implementation of previous agreements by the government.
National President of ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogumyemi told newsmen after the meeting that both sides were yet to arrive at a compromise.
He said “For now, we have started to discuss, we are yet to reach any concrete decision. Once we have more information, we will make ourselves available to the press.”

Ogumyemi said the meeting will reconvene very soon to continue negotiations, but was not definite.
The government’s representative at the meeting included the education minister, Adamu Adamu; the permanent secretary of the education ministry, Sunny Echono; a representative of National Universities Commission and a representative from the National Income, Wages and Salaries Commission.
The government had issued a no work no pay directive to Vice Chancellor’s but withdrew at the last minute.
