The meeting, which was held on Monday, November 21, was convened by the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETfund and chaired by its chairman, Senator Jibrin Barau.

It was gathered that the Committee adjourned the meeting indefinitely after the two parties failed to reach an agreement on the matter.

In attendance at the meeting were the national leadership of ASUU led by its national president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi; the executive secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Prof. Abubakar Rasheed; and the director general of the National Pension Commission (PenCom), Mrs. Ahonu-Amazu, among others.

According to Leadership newspaper, the meeting ended at about 8.20pm on Monday.

However, the one-week warning strike will end on Tuesday, November 22.

The union had vowed to follow it up with an infinite action if its demands are not met before the end of the warning strike.

Senator Barau told newsmen after the meeting that the peace meeting agreed on all issues at stake except the one on 'earned allowance’, which made them call it off for further engagements among all parties.

It was learnt that ASUU president and its delegation left the venue of the meeting without talking to newsmen.
