The Tuesday’s meeting between the federal government and ASUU, which lasted more than five hours, ended again in a deadlock.
ASUU National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi , while speaking with newsmen at the end of the closed door meeting in Abuja, noted that negotiations were still ongoing.
Both parties are yet to reach a concrete decision on the strike.
“For now, we have started to discuss. We are yet to reach any concrete decision. Once we have more information, we will make ourselves available to the press.
“The union will reconvene very soon to continue negotiations,” he said.
Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, refused to comment on the issue and rushed into his waiting car after the meeting.
Meanwhile, the President, National Association of Nigerian Students , Mr. Danielson Akpan, has urged both parties to have a common ground so that the universities can reopen.
He said they must put the interest of the country and Nigerian students above any other thing.
No date was fixed for further meetings between both parties.
For the third time in one month, the federal government and striking varsity teachers have failed to reach a compromise.
