The permission by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige to travel abroad for medical treatment may have stalled the negotiation between the Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Federal Government today.

It was gathered the rescheduled meeting between the union and federal government for today may not hold due to the permission sought by the convener and Labour Minister, Dr Chris Ngige who reportedly told the meeting of his scheduled medical trip abroad.

Meanwhile, President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Biodun Ogunyemi has stated that no issue contained in the union’s demands has been resolved.

He urged members to disregard the usual propaganda that the strike is politically motivated.

This position was contained in the Strike Bulletin 3 issued and signed by ASUU president.

Ogunyemi therefore asked members of the union to remain resolute with the strike.
