The meeting between the Academic Staff Union of Universities and the negotiation team of the Federal Government ended in a deadlock, according to PUNCH.
The ASUU president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, had on Monday confirmed to Channels Television that the union would meet the Federal Government’s team.
Osodeke had assured Nigerians that the union would call off its strike if the Federal Government presented a decent proposal.
The meeting, which our correspondent gathered took place at the National Universities Commission, was headed by the Emeritus Professor, Nimi-Briggs.
“The meeting ended with no end in sight. There were no new matters to discuss”, a highly reliable source within the ASUU NEC confirmed to our correspondent.
When contacted, Osodeke did not immediately reply to inquiries by our correspondent.
