ASUU Strike: Nigerian govt resumes talks with
striking lecturers
The federal government on Tuesday resumed
talks with the leaders of the Academic Staff
Union of Universities (ASUU) over the ongoing
strike in public universities which entered a
month today.
The crucial meeting has in attendance the
national president of the union, Biodun
Ogunyemi, who led the union’s delegation.
The meeting is taking place at the Federal
Ministry of Education in Abuja.
Also present are the education minister, Adamu
Adamu; the permanent secretary, Sunny
Echono; representative of National Universities
Commission and representative from the
National Income, Wages and Salaries
Commission.
Speaking with PREMIUM TIMES briefly, the
president of the National Association of Nigerian
Students (NANS), Danielson Akpan, who was
present at the meeting, said the two parties
need to consider the interest of the students in
their deliberations.
“My fear is that these politicians can give a
‘political response’ and may not meet the
conditions again,” Mr Akpan said.
The NANS president confirmed that the meeting
started a few minutes past 2 p.m.
The union embarked on strike on November 4
over the poor funding of Nigerian universities,
an alleged plan by the federal government to
increase students’ fees and introduce an
education bank, as well as non-implementation
of previous agreements.
More to come…
