The federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday rose from yet another meeting without an immediate resolution of the dispute.
The meeting which held at the Federal Ministry of Labour was to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike by the university lecturers.
This would be fourth meeting both federal government and ASUU would hold since the strike began on November 4.
Addressing journalists, the minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said the meeting has been adjourned to December 17.
Mr Ngige said the federal government is taking all necessary steps to address ASUU’s demands
Mr Ngige had earlier appealed to the striking lecturers to ensure that Monday’s dialogue yields results that will lead to ending the strike.
”The strike is five weeks old today and it is not in anybody’s interest. We will ensure the needful is done,” he said.
Meanwhile, the ASUU chairman, Biodun Ogunyemi, said the union would await the next adjournment date to see how far the federal government would deliver on its promises before it will take a decision on whether to suspend the industrial action.
