The Federal Government and the ASUU have begun negotiations with representatives from both parties, according to a report posted today by the PUNCH.
According to previous reports, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has halted academic activity in public universities in Nigeria since February of this year, as a result of the union’s strike, which began in February.
Moreover, since the strike began, ASUU and the federal government have met multiple times to try to resolve the walkout, but all efforts have failed, according to the report.
According to the PUNCH, the committee on the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement between ASUU and the Federal Government, led by Prof Nimi Briggs, “would meet with ASUU today (Monday), while the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Allied Institutions, and the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities will meet on Friday.”
In a statement to the press, ASUU President Prof. Emmanuel Osedeke said ASUU would meet with the Federal Government committee in Abuja today, Monday, June 13, 2022, based on the PUNCH story released today.
