Gbajabiamila To Meet ASUU On Tuesday Over Strike Action

Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, is scheduled to meet with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday.

Lanre Lasisi, special adviser to Gbajabiamila on media and publicity, confirmed the development on Sunday evening.

The leadership of the house and other stakeholders are expected to attend the meeting.

The goal of the meeting is to find a solution to the industrial action which has brought academic activities in public universities to a halt since February.

The federal government has met with the leadership of ASUU multiple times to resolve the union’s demands — which includes funding of universities and lecturers’ salaries and allowances.


The federal government had also recently filed a suit against the union at the national industrial court over the lingering strike.
