The meeting between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the ASUU University Teachers Union failed to reach an agreement on Tuesday.
This means that the union’s current strike will continue. Information shows that the representatives of the union who met with the committee of Prof. Nimi Briggs, at the National Universities Commission, went there with the full hope that the problems that made them engage in the strike that they have been doing for six months will be resolved.

ASUU said the committee chaired by Professor Nimi Briggs did not come up with anything new at the meeting.
Instead, the committee asked the union members to stop their strike, with the promise that their demands will be included in the 2023 budget.
According to reports, three hours were spent at the meeting, but no decision was reached by the two sides.
On the 14th of February 2022, ASUU started the strike because of the demand of the federal government to fulfill some of its demands.
Among the demands are to improve the well-being and welfare of the members of the group and to give them the right to self-determination and others.
