Universities To Remain Shut As FG’s Meeting With ASUU Is Inconclusive
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting, which started at 5 pm at the federal ministry of education, was to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike. The union embarked on the strike three weeks ago over the funding of Nigerian universities and an alleged plan by the federal government to increase students’ fees and introduce an education bank. The union is also demanding the implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) agreement by both parties in 2017.
Recall, it was reported that ASUU vowed to continue its ongoing industrial action if the federal government fails to meet its demands.
Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, the national president of ASUU in a statement on Sunday, November 25, said the union’s struggle is still alive and that the strike would continue, Premium Times reports. He said so far, there have been no concrete agreement from the meetings the union has been having with the federal government
