FG to meet education minister, VCs over ASUU strike 


The federal government has scheduled a meeting among the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, Pro-Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors of Federal universities over the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The meeting is expected to hold on September 6, 2022, at the National Universities Commission (NUC) secretariat in Abuja.

The statement was signed by NUC’s Deputy Executive Secretary, Administration, Mr Chris Maiyaki, and made available to newsmen.

The statement read, “As the Pro-Chancellors and Chairmen of Councils and the Vice-Chancellors are quite aware the industrial action by university-based unions has led to the closure of the institutions since February 2022.

“You are also aware that the non-teaching unions have suspended their industrial actions with effect from August 24, 2022, while a final decision is being awaited from ASUU.

“It has become necessary for the Governing Councils and the management of the universities to be briefed on the decisions and actions taken by the Federal Government so far to allow for a well-coordinated review of the situation including building consensus around succeeding actions.

“Consequently, I am to invite the Pro-Chancellors & Chairmen of Councils as well as Vice-Chancellors of Federal Universities to a special interactive meeting with the Honourable Minister of Education on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.”
