Dr. Wale Babalakin, who chairs the Nigerian government's side of the negotiation team, said the issues presented by ASUU were being considered.
Fresh negotiations have resumed between the Nigerian government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja, Dr. Wale Babalakin, who chairs the Nigerian government's side of the negotiation team, said the issues presented by ASUU were being considered.
According to NAN, Babalakin said both sides were making efforts to address the issues presented.
He said: “We resumed our renegotiation today. The government team and ASUU were appropriately represented and we had positive discussions. We are actually hopeful that we are on a positive path to finalising the negotiation.
“There were very hectic discussions on topical issues and both sides had extensive contributions for the benefit of the university system. It is the same negotiation. We had interim discussion, that is over now and we are back to where we left off. So it is a continuous negotiation.
“ASUU submitted its timetable today and there are more than 20 issues on that timetable; it is not a single issue, but they will all be discussed."
The ASUU representative, however, declined to comment on the outcome of the meeting.
