ASUU strike: Osinbajo disowns Ngige over negotiation team

Embattled students of public-owned universities became hopeful following the announcement on Wednesday, that the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, had taken over the headship of the Federal Government team that will negotiate with the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which has now been denied by the Presidency.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, told State House Correspondents at the post-Federal Executive Council briefing that Osinbajo had taken over some aspects of negotiations with the striking lecturers.
Ngige had stated: “At council today (Wednesday), the Vice President has taken over some of the aspects of the negotiations and discussions. So, we are continuing the meeting in his office and when we finish meeting, we will get back to ASUU for another round of meeting and we are hopeful that we will be able to go to an appreciable extent to solve some of the outstanding issues that is preventing them from going back to work.”
