The parties last met on November 15 but no agreement was reached, prompting Monday’s meeting.

“There is supposed to be a meeting tomorrow evening (Monday). It all depends on the way government approaches it,” Asuu President Biodun Ogunyemi told Punch.

“If they invite us further, we will go. It also depends on what they put on the table. We met them briefly and we agreed to meet on Monday (today).

“We met with the Minster of Education (Adamu Adamu) on Thursday and it was a short meeting. We have given them our terms.

“I am not representing myself but those who have given us a clear mandate and we shall abide by the terms,” explained Ogunyemi.
