The Federal Government () and the Academic Staff Union of Universities () have set date to resume talks on the lingering varsity strike.

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU’s National President confirmed to newsmen in Lagos that the union will meet with the Federal Government next week Monday, on 7th January 2019.

He revealed this while addressing the alleged payment of N15.89 billion to universities by the government, two months after it embarked on strike.

Ogunyemi said: “Well, someone actually drew my attention to that newspaper report. I have not received any formal letter from Federal Government, conveying such information to us.

“The only information I got from the Minister of Labour this afternoon when we spoke was that they have done something concerning our demands; what they have done, I do not know.

“The other thing he told me was that there is going to be a meeting between us (ASUU) and government on Monday.

“It is only when we get to the meeting that we will be able to know what government has done and if it is okay by us, then we will convey same to our members who will now take the next line of action,” he said.

Okay Nigeria recalls that the last meeting between ASUU and the Federal Government ended in deadlock after they didn’t reach an agreement.
