The third meeting between the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and the Federal Government has ended in another stalemate.
The meeting which lasted for seven hours could not reach a resolution, as the lecturers informed the government that talks with its members were still ongoing.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige told ASUU that the government will strive to address the mistrust between itself and the union.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi the ASUU president told the government that the union is optimistic of calling off the strike if it sees a commitment from the FG to address the burning issues.
ASUU embarked on its latest strike on Monday, Aug. 14, to press its demands, chiefly the immediate payment of earned allowances, as well as a review of the universities governance system.
