Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, says Nigerians will soon be informed on the outcome of meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari on the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Gbajabiamila said this on Friday after a meeting with Buhari at the presidential villa.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home the demand for improved funding for universities, a review of salaries for lecturers, among other issues.

TheCable had reported that the speaker  earlier met with the leadership of ASUU and Goodluck Opiah, the minister of state for education, on the strike.

On September 22, the leadership of house of representatives had also met with government officials on resolving the issues that led to the strike.

Speaking with journalists, the speaker said he had submitted a report to Buhari on the meetings held with concerned parties over the strike.

“We just came here for a follow-up, which was supposed to be yesterday. Unfortunately, the president was not around and this is a follow-up,” he said.

“We had, once again, very fruitful, good discussions with Mr. President on the pending issue and this matter will be concluded.

“You will hear directly from the president, but suffice to say that we had a very good meeting and it will be concluded.

“The assurance is that we’ve met with the president; we’ve discussed. It was a positive meeting.

“I think Nigerians will hear directly from Mr. President. We all look forward to it, but we had a good meeting. You can read between the lines.”
