Sen. Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, said this on Wednesday in Abuja, in a statement by Mrs Iliya Rhoda, Deputy Director, Press in the ministry.
“This is in furtherance to efforts at resolving the on-going industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

ASUU is striking for the implementation of agreement entered into by the government with the union.
