ASUU Strike: The takeover of negotiations by the Minister of Education gives hope of a solution -Osedeke


There appears to be disagreement between the presidency and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, over the outcome of the meeting with the presidential team involved in the resolution of the lingering strike embarked upon by the four university-based unions.

President Muhammadu Buhari who presided over the meeting gave the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, two weeks to resolve the impasse and report back to him..

Asked if the Two weeks directive by the President to resolve the issue is achievable, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said he proposed one week to resolve the issue but the Minister of Education Adamu volunteered to resolve the issues with ASUU in two weeks.

Rising from the FEC meeting and its outcome, Emmanuel Osodeke, president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities joins me now.
