The meeting between the Federal Government and the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been adjourned till Thursday (February 7, 2019). 

The meeting makes it the 9th time the striking lecturers are meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige to resolve the industrial action, which has lingered for almost three months.

The lecturers proceeded on strike on November 4, 2018, in protest of what they described as poor welfare, university revitalization among other demands.

Speaking to journalists at the end of the meeting, the labour minister as well as the ASUU President noted that they are making progress.

Both parties, however, refused to give any specific details, stating that the  press will be briefed after next Thursday’s meeting
