The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it is awaiting the response of the Federal Government on its demands. This was disclosed by the President of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke after the meeting with the Federal Government’s renegotiation committee headed by Prof. Nimi Briggs on Monday.
According to the ASUU president, the meeting was fair. He added that the union is expecting the government to respond to the issues they discussed with the committee.
When asked if ASUU would call the strike off soon since it had a fair deliberation with Briggs committee, Osodeke said, ‘‘I don’t know if we are calling off the strike soon. We are waiting for the final response from the government.
“It is a committee of different government agencies. They need to go back to their principal and look at what we agreed on and then get back to us. When they respond to us, we will give you full details.”
“They will call us when they are ready for another meeting, but none for now. We have had about three meetings with them.’’
