The speaker of the house of representatives Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, is scheduled to meet with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday along with the leadership of the house and other stakeholders.
This was made know by the special adviser to Gbajabiamila on media and publicity, Lanre Lasisi, on Sunday.
The essence 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.
Recall that The federal government has met with the leadership of ASUU multiple times to resolve the union’s demands to little to no avail.
The federal government had also recently filed a suit against the union at the national industrial court over the lingering strike.
ASUU had said it is ready to suspend the strike if the federal government shows a willingness to accept its “minimum” demands.
