The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) through the President, Biodun Ogunyemi, in an interview with the NAN on Sunday in Lagos, says it is looking forward to a fruitful deliberation with the federal government on Monday, in order to put an end to the ongoing strike action.
The lecturers had on August 13 embarked on what they described as a “comprehensive, total and indefinite strike” – Considering the FG had not met their demands of 2009; also, the non-implementation of 2013 memorandum of understanding (MoU).
“We are going into another round of meeting with representatives of the Federal government tomorrow, September 18.”
“We are still on strike. However, we are hoping that we will sort out all the grey areas and hope, too, that the Federal government will show sincerity and commitment on their own part.
“Should both sides settle whatever issues that have been brought before the house, we will consider putting the crisis behind us and move forward.
