FG, ASUU Meeting ends in another stalemate


FG, ASUU Meeting ends in another stalemate

The closed-door meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) has once more failed to reach a decisive conclusion.

The meeting which lasted for five hours with  newsmen being excused after opening remarks were made, was held on Wednesday, at the conference room of the Ministry of Labour and Employment in Abuja.

ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, led the delegation of striking lecturers to the meeting which had the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, in attendance.

In his opening remarks, the Minister said the Federal Government sees the meeting as a top priority and efforts were being made to ensure that Universities reopen as soon as possible.

The ASUU delegation, however, insisted that lecturers will not register on the Government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), but would prefer the platform of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, when it is established.

While details of the meeting appear vague there appears to be no conclusive agreement as both parties refused to speak to the press.
