The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, is currently having a meeting with members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in Abuja.
The meeting is aimed at finding lasting solution to the strike action embarked on by the union which has crippled tertiary education in public universities across the country.
The meeting started around 5pm on Monday. The meeting could give thousand of hapless students something to hope for as they pray for immediate return to class and an academic journey devoid of government and union imbroglio.
It is also part of a last-minute effort by the federal government to end the perennial industrial action by ASUU.
The union began its latest strike on 14 February before extending it for another two months.
Despite the deluge of criticism that has come ots way, ASUU had remained unyielding and insisted that the strike will continue until the government accede to demands bothering on revitalization funds and discrepancies associated with the Integrated Personnel Payment and Payroll System IPPIS.
