Strike: Again, Ngige, ASUU raise hopes on school reopening

Hope appears in the horizon for students of public universities to return to their classrooms after 143 days at home.

Yesterday, the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said progress was being made on the contentious issues that led to the strike.

Today, all relevant government agencies working on the issues in dispute are expected to meet in Abuja to harmonise their positions for presentation to the Ibrahim Gambari-led committee mandated by President Muhammadu Buhari to bring an end to the strike by all the industrial unions in the universities.

The committee comprises the Ministry of Education,  Ministry of Labour and Productivity. the  National Salaries and Wages Income Commission, the National University Commission, National Universities Commission (NUC)  and the striking unions.
