Buhari’s Chief of Staff to chair meeting with ASUU



The Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, Prof Agboola Gambari will be charing a meeting between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) today, Thursday.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022, over recurring disagreement with the federal government on mode of payment and the deplorable state of universities in the country.

Previous meetings between both parties since the commencement of the strike has not yielded fruitful results as the academic union accused the federal government of insensitivity and reneging on promises.
