ASUU ends meeting, to brief the Federal Government on outcome



Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has maintained sealed lips on the outcome of its National Executive Committee meeting held at the Bayero University, Kano, between Thursday and Friday.

The meeting had raised hopes of parents of undergraduates that the lingering strike of lecturers of public universities would be suspended.
However, the union has refused to communicate the outcome of the meeting to the press.
Attempts made on Saturday to get principal officers of ASUU to speak on the meeting proved abortive.
When contacted, the Chairman, Nasarawa State University, Dr. Theophilus Lagi, said only the ASUU National President, Dr. Nasir Faggae, could speak on the matter.
However, several calls to Faggae’s phone went unanswered.
A promise was made to the President to have him informed before ASUU goes public. That promise will be kept tomorrow when the President comes back.”
Meanwhile on Saturday, the Federal Government appealed to ASUU to call off the strike it embarked upon over four months ago in the interest the students.
The Federal Government has set aside N220bn yearly for the development of tertiary institutions in the country. This is part of the President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration to develop the education sector.
