The federal government has assured that the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would soon end.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this in Abuja on Wednesday.
He disclosed that the Ministries of Finance, Education, Labour and Employment and the Office of the Accountant General will meet with the union.
ASUU top officials have repeatedly stated that the strike is still in force.
The body wants implementation of the 2012 agreement.
ASUU is also against government’s insistence that all lecturers must enroll on the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System (IPPIS).
