FG Yet To Invite Us For Negotiation – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has declared that the Federal Government has not invited the university lecturers to a negotiation meeting as it claimed.

This was as a result of a media briefing by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, that the Federal Government will be meeting the striking lecturers on Monday to resolve the lingering crisis.

Recall that following inability of the Federal Government to implement agreements entered into with ASUU, the union had after a one-month warning strike in February, shut down public universities for another two months which would elapse on Monday (April 9).

Ngige, a 2023 presidential aspirant under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, assured Nigerians in a statement on Friday that the lingering crisis would be resolved in a meeting on Monday.

Reacting, the National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, told newsmen on Sunday that the union has not received any invitation from the government.

He said, “The way you heard it, that was how we got the news too. We heard it in the media.

We expected that if there would be any meeting, the Minister should have reached out to us first before going to the media”.

The Minister of Labour has not reached out to us for any meeting.
