Indefinite strike: FG summons varsity councils, vice-chancellors as parents grumble

The Federal Government has invited pro-chancellors, vice-chancellors, and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities to a meeting in Abuja on September 6 as part of efforts to resolve the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The meeting was convened by the National Universities Commission, which stated that participants would review the 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 came to the fore as the strike by ASUU entered the 198th day amid the decision of the university lecturers to declare a comprehensive industrial action.

Stakeholders, particularly parents, in different interviews with The PUNCH, berated ASUU and the government, lamenting that the future of their children was being toyed with.
