On Wednesday, the meeting between leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and the Federal Government ended in deadlock.
Students, members of the union and Nigerians were hoping that the result of the ASUU meeting would be a favorable one which will pave way for resumption of academic activities.
There was setback following the absence of the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu and Minister of Finance Mrs. Zainab Ahmed.
They were at the National Assembly defending their ministry budget for 2021.
Meanwhile, Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, was present at the meetin
ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, while speaking after the meeting said, “there was nothing new”.
He also refused to say anything further after the meeting which yielded no result after seven-month strike which simply tells that the ASUU strike continues.
