*As Oshiomhole meets ASUU leaders
ABUJAâ€”THE Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will today resume negotiations in an efforts to find solution to the lingering face-off between both parties after about a month that the government walked out, Vanguard can authoritatively report.
To prepare a positive ground for the meeting with the government, Comrade Oshiomhole, who had last week met with the Minister of Education,Â Dr. Sam Egwu over the lingeringÂ strike, would this morning meet the leadership of ASUU in Abuja.
This is coming even as the Bishop of the Lagos and Archbishop of Ecclesiastical Province of Lagos, Most Revd Dr. Adebola Ademowo, scored the present administration a low mark in area of education at a ceremony to mark the Lagos State judiciary new legal year.
Ademowo stated that the on-going strike action in the nationâ€™s tertiary institutions would not have been prolonged, if any of the children of the political office holders are in any of the schools
The three industrial unions in the unionâ€™s university system, ASUU, their Non-Academic Staff of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU ) and Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) counterparts, have been on strike for over three months over government refusal to sign and implement an agreement reached with government negotiating team headed by Chief Gameliel Onosode.
