No concrete decision has been reached on ways to end the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
This is as the meeting between the union and the representatives of the Federal Government held at the Ministry of Education in Abuja on Tuesday was adjourned without any conclusion.
The National President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, who spoke with journalists shortly after the meeting 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.”
Negotiation, he said, would continue soon when the meeting resumed.

According to him, the meeting would reconvene very soon to continue negotiations.
Among others at the meeting on the side of the government were the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Sunny Echono.
It would be recalled that a similar meeting held on recently ended without a resolution of the crisis.
The discussion at the meeting border on the funding for revitalisation of universities; earned academic allowances; staff schools; pension matters; salary shortfalls, Treasury Single Account exemption; and state universities.
