The reconciliatory meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities has ended inconclusively, IgbereTV reports.
Amid the warning strike declared by the lecturers, both parties failed to reach an agreement at the meeting held on Tuesday in Abuja.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who convened the meeting, led the government delegation while ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, attended alongside other leaders of the union.
“ASUU – FG To Negotiate On A Later Date, Meeting Inconclusive,” the union said in a tweet on Tuesday night.
Another tweet read, “The conciliatory meeting between the minister of Labour and the leadership of ASUU on Tuesday evening has come to an end with both parties refusing to brief the press on the issues that were discussed.”
