The Federal Government, on Saturday, said its suspended talks with striking university teachers would resume immediately after the Sallah holidays.
Spokesman of Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Samuel Oloowokere, in a statement, in Abuja, said the parley was in line with the request of the Academic Staff of Nigerian Universities (ASUU).
“In view of its determination to end every disruption in the academic calendar of universities, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige wishes to inform all stakeholders and the general public that conciliation with the university teachers will resume immediately after the Sallah break as requested by ASUU,” the statement stated.
It did not, however, state any particular date.
