The Minister of Labor and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, who is the chief negotiator of the matter said in a letter to the union that the Federal Government has scheduled a meeting with ASUU today. Note that since the strike began, both parties have been pointing accusing fingers at one another as the root cause of both parties’ disagreement.
The union began their strike on the 14th of February on the basis of unaddressed issues such as renegotiation of conditions of service, injection of revitalisation funds, payment of earned academic allowances, implementation of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
