FG’s Meeting With ASUU Ends Inconclusive


The meeting between the Federal Government and the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), ended in a deadlock on Tuesday.

Last Monday, ASUU declared a one-week warning strike over claims that the Federal Government has failed to meet its demands, which include the revitalization of public universities, payment of earned allowances, improved funding of state universities, and promotion arrears for members.

Another concern raised was the replacement of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) with the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) in the payment of emoluments to members, among others.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who convened Tuesday’s meeting, led the government delegation while ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, attended alongside other leaders of the union.

A tweet shared by the association stated that the meeting was inconclusive.

“The conciliatory meeting between the Minister of Labour and the leadership of ASUU on Tuesday evening has come to an end with both parties refusing to brief the press on the issues that were discussed,” the union said.
