Federal government of Nigeria has resumed renegotiation with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the 2009 agreement.
The chairman, federal government re-negotiation team, Dr Wale Babalakin who addressed journalists yesterday in Abuja after the meeting that started at about 10 am but lasted till to 4.30 pm, said there were positive signs that the issue will be laid to rest.
“We resumed our renegotiation today. The government’s team and ASUU were appropriately represented and we had positive discussions and we are actually hopeful that we are on a good path for finalising the negotiation.
“There were very hectic discussions on topical issues and both sides made extensive contributions for the benefits of university system. It is the same negotiation. We had an interim and that is over and we are now back to where we left it. So it is a continuous negotiation.
He disclosed that ASUU submitted their timetable today which contained over 20 issues. “So it is not a singular issue to be discussed and they will all be discussed,” he added.
