The Academic Staff Union of Universities (Asuu) and the Federal Government will hold a reconciliatory meeting on Thursday in a bid to end the ongoing strike.
This was revealed by Asuu president Biodun Ogunyemi on Wednesday where he said it would be the FG and the lecturers adjourned their last meeting.
“We have set of information for our members. Until we tell our members,” Ogunyemi said.
“We are making progress and the progress we are making is for everybody’s interest and stakeholders will benefit at the end of the day.
“We will be meeting on Thursday (today). We have trashed all grey areas so the progress we have made must first be related to our members.”
While speaking about the meeting, the Acting Director at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Iliya Rhoda, said Labour and Employment Minister Chris Ngige will preside over the meeting.
The statement added that in “Furtherance to efforts at resolving the on-going industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, is scheduled to hold a conciliatory meeting with the executive of ASUU.”
Asuu has been on strike since November 2018.
