The meeting, according to the senators was with a view to assuaging the feelings of NASU over its alleged neglect by the government.

NASU had embarked on warning strike because the Federal Government has started implementing the agreement it had with their counterparts in the academic staff union.

The non-teaching staff lamented that the Federal Government gave preference to the demands of the Academic Staff Union of University but abandoned their own.

The lawmakers said the President of the Senate should also seize the opportunity of the parley to get clarification on all contending issues as they relate to their counterpart in ASUU.
