ASUU Strike: FG To Hold Official Meeting With Union On Thursday

ASUU Strike: FG to hold executive meeting with Union on Thursday
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will on Thursday hold a critical meeting with the Federal Government, precisely seven days after the speakers declined to appear for a meeting with the administration assignment.

The meeting is at the instance of the ministers of labour and education and was communicated to ASUU in the early hours of Tuesday.

People anticipated that would be at the meeting are the Minister of Labor, Chris Ngige, and the Minister of Education, Adamu.

Biodun Ogunyemi, the President of ASUU has affirmed Thursday's meeting as indicated by TodayNG.

"We simply got the notice of the meeting. Until Thursday, that is the point at which we can state what might happen yet we have been welcomed for the meeting."He said.

A National Executive Council meeting of ASUU which held a week ago had investigated the administration's underlying offer to a portion of the requests of the speakers. At that meeting, the instructors made plans to continue with the strike which initiated on August 13.

The national government had allegedly offered to pay N23 billion and a regularly scheduled installment of N1.5 billion pending the result of the scientific review being done by the Ministry of Finance on different colleges.

A portion of the requests of the teachers incorporate installment of shortage in pay rates, colleges to be permitted to deal with their inward income autonomously and exclusion of colleges from the Treasury Single Account.
