Strike Continues as FG, ASUU Meeting Inconclusive
The meeting between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday in Abuja ended without any agreement.

 The meeting is coming almost two weeks after several efforts to resolve the issues that led to the strike with the Minister of Education failed.
The Minister of Labour and Employment told journalists that government’s discussion with ASUU will continue next week.
The lecturers insisted that the industrial action embarked upon by its members will continue.

The Minister, who led the Federal Government’s delegation, said he is optimistic that the resumed discussions will lead to the suspension of the industrial action.
However, the striking lecturers believe that the outcome of the next meeting, to be held with the Education Minister in attendance, will determine their decision.
Channels News reports that the university lecturers have been on strike since November 4, 2018, over non-payment of earned allowance and other welfare issues.
According to them, the strike is meant to express grievance over certain unimplemented areas in the 2017 MoA, which they said suggested the Federal Government’s insincerity to the demands by the lecturers.
