The Academic Staff Union of Universities has hinted that there is no sign the scheduled Monday meeting with the federal government would bring an end to the two month old strike embarked upon by university lecturers.
The union also said it was not expecting the FG to come up with a new discussion to return the lecturers to the classroom.
When asked on the prospect of an early resolution of the industrial dispute, the National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, during a telephone conversation with Punch newspaper on Friday said the union would hope the government takes reasonable steps.
Ogunyemi said, “I’ am afraid nothing new. I understand they will be meeting us on Monday. Let’s wait and see if they take a reasonable step; it will determine our next line of action. Until then, let’s wait and see.”
Members of ASUU went on strike on November 4, 2018 to demand for improved funding of universities and implementation of previous agreements with the government.
