No fixed date for negotiation with FG – ASUU




No fixed date for negotiation with FG – ASUU

Hopes of early resolution  of  the issues  that led to the declaration of indefinite strike action by  the   Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) were dashed yesterday as the union president Professor  Biodun Ogunyemi said the union had no fixed date or appointment  to meet the Federal Government over the crisis.

Prof Ogunyemi in a telephone interview with Daily Trust, said that the union was consulting with its members in all government owned universities  across the country to know the next line to tow and would brief the press as soon as the process was concluded.

Asked on what the Federal Government had offered to the union to call off the indefinite strike it declared Monday, August 14, the ASUU president said that he would not comment on the issue until the union concluded its in-house consultations and deemed it necessary to do so.

When contacted,  Samuel Olowookere, the Deputy Director (Press) in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, said he could not comment on the matter as he was on a trip.
