It appears the strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), will continue, as the leaders of the Union and the Federal Government failed to reach an agreement again.
The meeting ended inconclusively has ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, and other leaders of the union walked out of the meeting.
Professor Ogunyemi, however, did not speak to newsmen about the outcome of the meeting and why they stormed out after about two hours.
However, the Minister of Labor, Senator Chris Ngige, in an interview with newsmen after the meeting, claimed that the lecturers did not walk out.
He further revealed that negotiations were still on and that the government was poised to ensure all knotty issues were resolved before Christmas to enable students return to classes.
