The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and the Federal Government has again ended without an agreement which means the six-month old strike by public university lecturers is to continue.
The striking lecturers had met with the Nimi Briggs Committee at the National University Commission in Abuja with high hopes of resolving the impasse.
A senior member of ASUU, who craved anonymity told Newsmen that members of the Briggs renegotiation committee did not come with any new offer on the table, the committee pleads with the lecturers to suspend the ongoing strike, with promises that their concerns will be included in the 2023.
It will be recalled that ASUU embarked on a four-week warning strike on February 14, and on March 14 the Union again extended the industrial action by another two months to allow the government meet all of its demands. Since 9th May, the Union has remained on strike, vowing to persist until its demands are met.
