The Federal Government has expressed optimism striking lecturers may be back in classes any moment from now.
This followed an eight-hour meeting between ASUU leaders and the Federal Government, which ended on an amicable note.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, told reporters the dialogue was fruitful.
ASUU’s president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi agreed with him.
Ngige said the government has made a proposal which ASUU will take back to their executives.
The Minister explained that several issues were discussed in the Friday meeting, including salary shortfall, the payment system for lecturers and revitalisation of universities.
He expressed optimism that all the issues will be resolved at their next meeting.
