ASUU Strike News – Lecturers’ Meeting with Lawmakers, Ministers Deadlocked
The meeting between striking university lecturers’ and federal legislators was deadlocked on Monday.
The meeting, held at the National Assembly Complex, failed to resolve the contending issues. The meeting was initially delayed reportedly due to the late arrival of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim.
The lecturers, members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, were said to have insisted on a 100 per cent implementation of the 2009 agreement with the federal government; while the lawmakers and government officials present requested partial implementation.
ASUU has been on strike for almost two weeks, paralyzing academic activities at all Nigeria’s public universities.
