The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday said that it would continue with the ongoing strike unless the Federal Government satisfied their demand on the revitalization .
Speaking after the rescheduled meeting with the FG at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment which lasted about four hours , ASUU president , Prof Biodun Ogunyemi , told reporters that the meeting ended with grey areas to be resolved .
He said , “ We have not suspended the strike , the discussion will continue at a later date . We are going back to our members for further consultation . FG gave us reaction to our proposals but there were still grey areas that we are trying to sort out .
“ Before the strike can be suspended , the most critical area that FG must address is revitalization . It is central to our academic work , unless that area is addressed , our members will still have issues . We are not demanding for N 50 bn , we are saying that the minimum that FG can release to reactivate revitalization fund is N 50 bn . ”
The Minister of Labour and Employment , Dr Chris Ngige, however said that the FG and made substantial commitment to ASUU demands and would meet the leadership again when they were ready . He added that although he had expected a marathon session with ASUU because President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered him to ensure that all issues relating to the strike were resolved , the meeting ended early .
He said , “ We did not take a long time than we anticipated . We have other commitments but the important thing is that we have made substantial progress . We have reached some agreements in seven areas . Most of the issues have been resolved but ASUU will need to consult its members and come with what they think .
