ASUU Strike: No resumption in sight as FG meeting with union ends in deadlock

The representatives of the Federal Government and the leadership of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) could not reach an agreement over the ongoing industrial action by the union.

ASUU National Chairman, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi made this known to newsmen on Monday after the meeting.

Ogunyemi who said that negotiations were still going on noted that the ASUU’s meeting with the government has so far been inconclusive.

TheEcho recalls that the union embarked on a nationwide strike on November 5th due to poor funding of the nation’s tertiary institutions and alleged plan to increase students’ school fees coupled with a controversial creation of education bank.

The union is also asking the federal government to honour the Memorandum of Action (MoA) both parties agreed to in 2017.
