In a bid to resolve the indefinite industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the Federal Government has invited pro-chancellors, vice-chancellors and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities to a meeting in Abuja on September 6th, 2022.

According to report, the meeting was convened by the National Universities Commission, which stated that participants would review actions of the government on the strike.

The letter inviting the heads of the universities to the meeting was signed by the NUC’s Deputy Executive Secretary, Administration, Chris Maiyaki and obtained by one of our correspondents on Tuesday.

This is coming after ASUU on Monday declared a comprehensive industrial action.

Recall that ASUU on February 14 embarked on strike because of what it described as “failure” on the part of the government to meet its demands.
