The Federal Government representatives and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) leadership met on Tuesday to discuss the organization’s ongoing strike action, but again there was no resolution.
The meeting was to discuss one of the seven issues that ASUU is protesting, according to Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, president of ASUU.
Remember that the Union began a four-week warning strike on February 14? On March 14, the union extended the strike by a further two months to give the government time to accede to all of its demands. On May 9, a 12-week extension was declared.
This indicates that the six-month-old lecturers’ strike at public universities will go on.
The Professor Nimi Briggs Committee and the striking lecturers met on Tuesday at the National University Commission in Abuja in the hopes of breaking the deadlock.
Members of the Briggs renegotiation committee did not present any new offers to the table, according to a senior member of ASUU who requested anonymity.
Instead, the committee begged the lecturers to call off the strike, the ASUU source claimed, assuring them that their issues would be addressed in the 2023 budget.
The meeting, which began around 12 pm, lasted for about three hours without producing a resolution, according to the source.
According to the union, the government’s failure to comply with some demands, including the release of funds for university revitalization, the release of earned allowances for university lecturers, the implementation of the University Transparency Accountability System for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers, and renegotiation, led to the strike.
