Vice President Namadi Sambo led the
Federal Government team in a
renewed negotiation with ASUU to

Nyesom Wike, Executive Secretary of
National Universities Commission, NUC, Prof. Julius Okojie and technical staff of
the Federal Ministry of Education.
Scan-News gathered that ASUU
President, Dr Nasir Isa Fagge and his
executives were accompanied to the
meeting by Committee of Vice Chancellors leadership.

between Barr. Wike and ASUU
leadership teased out areas of
possible concession of both sides.

from the implementation of projects in
the universities.

agreed that they should suspend their
strike, while the process of implementation continues.
A Vice Chancellor of a northern
university attending the meeting said
that key issues will be ratified and the
strike may be resolved in less than two
weeks. According to him, the vigour and
forthrightness introduced by the
Supervising Minister of Education, Barr.
Wike who opened diplomatic channels
with ASUU leadership.
“Our belief is that with the ground work already done, this strike should
not last more than two weeks”, he
said.

week, it was gathered.

meeting that ended about 2pm on
