Following several failed meetings between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to stop the on-going strike, Dr Namadi Sambo, Vice-president of Nigeria, took over the negotiations with the union last night.
The Federal Government’s delegation was led by the Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom, the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Julius Okojie, with the vice chancellor of some universities.
The deliberation was described as fruitful and the president of ASUU stated that they would meet again with the Minister of Education within a week.
Now that our hopes are raised, I pray that we won’t be disappointed again. In the mean time youths, get busy.
