The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) meeting on Tuesday came to an end once more without a resolution.This indicates that the six-month-old lecturers’ strike at public universities will continue.
The Professor Nimi Briggs Committee and the striking academics met on Tuesday at the National University Commission in Abuja in the hope of breaking the deadlock.
Members of the Briggs renegotiation committee did not present any new offers to the table, according to a top member of ASUU who requested anonymity.
Instead, the committee begged the professors to cease their strike, the ASUU source claimed, assuring them that their issues would be addressed in the 2023 budget.
The discussion, which began at noon, reportedly lasted for about three hours without producing a resolution.
