ASUU Strike 2018
The Federal Government held a meeting with the Academic staff union of universities (ASUU) yesterday November 26th 2018, towards ending the strike.
The ASUU strike which kicked off on the 4th of November and have lasted for 24 days has brought a halt to academic activities on many Nigerian universities. The plan to hold a meeting with the FG was confirmed by the president of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, in an interview with Newsmen.
Details About The Meeting
The meeting began at 5PM on Monday and the outcome of the meeting is yet to be made available to the public.
This isn’t the first meeting the FG would be having with the union since the strike started. Just last week, ASUU had another meeting with the FG on coming to terms that would favour both parties. However, the meeting was futile.
The ASUU president represented the union while the minister of Education and her permanent secretary represented the FG.
The meeting initially had a total of eight members of the union present. However, they were asked to excuse the hall as the meeting was only scheduled for the FG and ASUU delegates. Do you smell foul play here?
Last week, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Threatened the President with their votes against the coming presidential election 2019. This happened after the president sort support for his second term aspiration and called out to the Youths for support.
We are yet to receive any updates on the outcome of the meeting. Stay tuned to Vasiti for more updates on the ASUU Strike 2018
