ASUU MEET WITH FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGAIN
In furtherance of deliberations to call off the ongoing ASUU strike and the resumption of full academic activities, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will hold a meeting today in Abuja, with the Federal government. Thus, ASUU meet with the Federal government today.
The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi who confirmed the progress on Tuesday, explained that the meeting was in continuation of a series of meetings that have been held with government representatives in the past.
The leadership of the union had earlier maintained that they have five major issues that led to the withdrawal of their services a few months ago, but the major concern is the adoption of the University Transparency Account System (UTAS) for the personnel management of its members.
He said: “After our last meeting with Government representatives, we collectively agreed that I should return to my people to update them on the resolutions. I have been doing that since the last time we met with the government.
“So, all the parties involved have agreed to return to the dialogue table on Wednesday to continue discussions and search for durable labour peace in the University system. That’s the much I can say for now.”
Despite all these, it was said by Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi that, the decision to call off the strike is dependent on the Federal government and the outcome of the meeting.
