The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says negotiation between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, will resume after the Salah, which ends today
In a statement issued by Samuel Olowookere, Deputy Director (Press) in the ministry, Mr. Ngige said the meeting would hold shortly after the holidays as requested by the leadership of ASUU.
He also dispelled speculations of uncertainty over talks between the federal government and the union.
“Engagement of the striking ASUU members is still being handled by ministers of Labour and Employment and the ministers of Education.
“Issues of strike by an employee are a labour matter. The Minister of Labour and Employment is, therefore, synergising with the Ministry of Education to resolve the dispute.
“This is normal procedure in government where ministers brief and report to the president or vice-president to streamline efforts and gains in a given assignment,” he said.
The university lecturers have been on strike for over two weeks due to the government’s failure to honour past agreements with ASUU and other welfare demands.
