BREAKING: Again, ASUU, FG negotiations fail


The last meeting between the striking Nigerian university lecturers and the federal government last Thursday night failed to yield any dividends.
The meeting was summoned at the State House Abuja by the Chief of Staff to the president, Amb. Agboola Gambari.
It was also attended by the Labour minister, Chris Ngige, Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, the CAN President, Dr Supo Ayokunle and some labour leaders.
The government had persuaded the striking teachers on the platform of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to return to work with a promise to attend to their demands later.
But our sources say that ASUU leaders bluntly refused, stating that their members wouldn’t accept that position.
To soften up, ASUU asked the government to make a commitment of attending to part of their demands for them to accept the position.
The meeting would have been a fallout of the public call by President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday at the National Productivity Award to the teachers to return to work with a promise that government will attend to their demands.
