The Federal Government has again been unable to come to a to reach a consensus with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (Asuu) over its ongoing nationwide strike.

According to the President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, he said the meeting to resolve the over three weeks industrial action would continue at a later date.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives said it was worried about the ongoing strike which has grounded activities in most universities across the country.

In the same vein, chairman of the House Committee on Tertiary Education, Aminu Suleiman, stated this when he led members of the committee on an oversight visit to the Ministry of Education.

He appealed to the government and Asuu to go beyond resolving the current industrial action and provide lasting solutions that would make incessant strike in the education sector a thing of the past.
