ASUU Strike: FG to hold executive meeting with Union on Thursday


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will on Thursday hold a crucial meeting with the Federal Government, exactly a week after the lecturers refused to show up for a meeting with the government delegation.

The meeting is at the instance of the ministers of labour and education and was communicated to ASUU in the early hours of Tuesday.

Persons expected to be at the meeting are the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.

Biodun Ogunyemi, the President of ASUU has confirmed Thursday’s meeting according to TodayNG.

“We just received the notification of the meeting. Until Thursday, that is when we can say what would happen but we have been invited for the meeting.”He said.

A National Executive Council meeting of ASUU which held last week had reviewed the government’s initial offer to some of the demands of the lecturers. At that meeting, the lecturers resolved to proceed with the strike which commenced on August 13.
The federal government had reportedly offered to pay N23 billion and a monthly payment of N1.5 billion pending the outcome of the forensic audit being carried out by the Ministry of Finance on various universities.
