The minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige has negated statements made by ASUU President, Professor Ogunyemi on federal government part of the bargain to end the union’s ongoing strike.

This new outcome may mean that the ongoing ASUU strike will continue indefinitely.

Reports from The Nation say that on Tuesday, December 8, Chris Ngige faulted the statements made by Professor Ogunyemi, who had earlier said that the federal government’s delay in fulfilling their promises to the union is the cause of the continued strike.
