ASUU’s meeting with the federal government ends with no agreement
Tuesday, February 22, was a fruitless meeting between representatives of the Federal Government and members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), as the two parties were unable to reach an agreement on a soft landing for the students.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, had convened the meeting, which was attended by the President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, and other union leaders, in order to resolve the lingering crisis between the union and the government, which had been going on for some time.
However, in a statement posted on the official Twitter website of the ASUU, the union stated that the meeting had ended in a deadlock and that more discussions were underway.
I’m getting tired of Nigeria education. There’s no year free of ASUU strike. Four years course now turned to 6yrs. After the course another struggle to get employment. God deliver my country Nigeria
