The five- hour meeting held Thursday between Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities, ASUU, and the Federal Government with a view to ending the 12-day old strike embarked upon by public university lecturers ended in deadlock.

The two parties, however, agreed that negotiation will resume next week.

National President of ASUU, Prof Abiodun Ogunyemi, who spoke briefly to the press immediately after the meeting which started at 3:16pm and ended at 8:19pm, said the strike was still ongoing and had not been called off as ASUU’s demands were yet to be met.

According to him, “We have just started the discussions; we have not really gone far. So what we have done today is just to open up the issues. So the strike still continues. We have not fixed a date for the next meeting but by tomorrow, we should know.”

Ogunyemi while reacting to claims of the federal government over the on-going strike before the commencement of the meeting, said universities in Nigeria had been subjected to 20 years of continued re-colonisation under democracy, with claims that this had further affected the economy in all spheres.
