The meeting started around 5.10pm and stretched till 9.30pm, with the government delegation led by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, and the Permanent Secretary, Sony Echono.
The union embarked on the strike three weeks ago over the funding of Nigerian universities and an alleged plan by the Federal Government to increase students’ fees and introduce an education bank.
The union is also demanding the implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) agreement by both parties in 2017.
