The strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) continues as the Tuesday meeting between the union leadership and the Federal Government (FG) has reached a deadlock.
The striking lecturers on Tuesday met with the FG through the National University Commission (NUC) in Abuja to resolve disagreement between the two parties.
It was gathered that the Prof. Nimi Briggs Renegotiation Committee failed to make the lecturers halt their industrial action running to six months.
It was also learnt that the 3-hour meeting started around 12 noon.
The committee could not convince the lecturers to suspend the ongoing strike, despite promising to include their demands in the 2023 Budget.
