In a bid to end the six-month industrial action by university lecturers, the leadership of the Senate on Monday held a closed-door meeting with the representative of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Abuja.
The meeting was attended by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, and other principal officers of the Senate while the ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, led the union’s delegation to the National Assembly complex where the meeting took place.
