ASUU: Labour Minister confirms another meeting with University Union
The nationwide University strike employed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities has been a daily topic on the news in recent days as Students and parents keep venting their outrage on the government to implement necessary actions to bring students back to academic grounds.
In response, the Federal Government has announced it is set to resume failed negotiations with the Academic Union as early as the start of next week.
This comes from the revelation given by Nigeria’s Labour Minister, Dr. Chris Ngige during his meeting with the striking National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).
The minister notes that the Federal Government is hopeful a conclusion would be reached with the union stating that the academic union does not take advantage of open door policies with the Government.
Early in the week it was reported the academic union would go into negotiations if it involves Vice President Yemi Osibanjo leading proceedings but the Labour Minister’s comments do not clarify if that will or will not happen.
Be that as it may, the ASUU strike is one Nigerian students are eager to see a closure to as they have been stuck at home for months without concrete information as regards the dialogues upon dialogues engaged between both parties.
