ASUU:Second meeting with FG in Deadlock


The meeting between lawmakers and lecturers of ASUU has ended at 8.32 pm on Monday. However, no concrete agreements concerning long-awaited payments were not made public.

The second meeting between the Senate and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ended in deadlock on Monday night, November 21. The 8 hour-meeting that was convoked to put an end to an ongoing strike of education workers and find solutions to a number of related issues seem to be ended without any particular results.

Senator Jibrin Barau, the chairman of the Senate committee on tertiary education and TETFund, said: “You can see we have spent about 8 hours in this very important meeting. We have deliberated and, thanks to God, we have dealt with all the issues and we have agreed on all the issues except one.

We have adjourned to make consultations, every sections of the meeting will get back to his constituency and report to it what transpired. At a later date we will reconvene to thrash out the remaining issues.”
