The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has once again rejected the plea to return to call off its ongoing strike.
The union, which met with Federal Government officials on Tuesday, maintained its stance on the industrial action.
Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, was part of the meeting that ended without a truce.
Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, Chairman of the Union, accused the Federal Government of withholding the salaries of lecturers so as to force them to return to classrooms.
More to come.
