OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT – PRESS RELEASE

FG-ASUU NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUE UNDER LEADERSHIP OF LABOUR & EDUCATION MINISTERS

News reports that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, is now leading Federal Government negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU is inaccurate.

Media reports seemed to have misrepresented what Labor & Employment Minister, Dr. Chris Ngige meant when he spoke with reporters about the negotiations after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

The Vice President had a discussion after FEC with both the Labour Minister and Education Minister Malam Adamu Adamu around the issues, but has not taken over the negotiations as widely reported. Both Ministers will continue to lead the FG- ASUU talks.

The Federal Government continues to diligently pursue a prompt resolution of this dispute and is confident the matter would be resolved.
