The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Monday disclosed that it was still consulting with its members over the offers made by the Federal Government.
ASUU’s National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the government had made some offers in the course of their meetings which are still being deliberated by members.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos, Ogunyemi also disclosed that the body will this week meet with officials of the government.
He said: “We are still consulting with our chapters across the country.
“There are promises that government made and we are trying to consult with the various university chapters on the options before the union.
“By the time we are fully aware on what is left of our demands from what the government is offering, then we will know what steps to take, even as negotiations with the government continues.
“For instance, we are in touch with about 20 universities that are affected, to be sure of the level of implementation.
“By the time we finish our assessment, we will now send our response back to the government, concerning the level of implementation.
“And depending on the outcome of our further engagements with government, we will now get back to our members.”
