The government is also seeking to use the discussion to improve on its efforts so far at resolving all contending issues raised by the striking lecturers.

The union went on strike following the alleged inability of the government to respond to its demands.

It had also raised concerns over the poor funding of Nigerian Universities, the alleged plot to increase students’ fees, introduction of an education bank, as well as non-implementation of previous agreements, among other issues.

Today’s meeting followed at least five others between the government and the union which ended inconclusively since the strike began.
