Prospects of undergraduate students returning back to campus soon may have been dashed as the reconciliation meeting between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ended in a deadlock.

The meeting, which was presided over by the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu, lasted for more than three hours at the Federal Ministry of Education but parties to the meeting could not reach a compromise on the way forward.

ASUU National President Biodun Ogunyemi however disclosed that the meeting will continue at a date yet to be disclosed.

The strike action, which has paralysed academic activities in most of the nation’s tertiary institutions, began on November 4th 2018.
Both the Federal Government and ASUU had been at loggerheads over a consensus agreements allegedly reached in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

Part of the contending issues centred around better welfare packages for the lecturers, including boosting infrastructural needs of most of Nigeria’s tertiary institutions.

The Minister of Education had previously accused previous administrations of entering into Pact with ASUU even when they understood the constraints of funding before government.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives Committee on Tertiary Education has appealed to the striking lecturers to shelve their action in the interest of the country.

Chairman of the Committee, Sulaiman Aminu, who led other members on an oversight visit to the Ministry on Monday, urged stakeholders in the sector to find lasting solutions to strikes in the country.
