The Federal Government negotiation team will also hold another round of discussions with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in a bid to resolve their differences and reopen the country’s public tertiary institutions that have been shut down in the past one month.

Organised Labour wants the Federal Government to forward to the National Assembly, a new national minimum wage bill, to allow for review and payment of N30,000 to the least paid worker.

Both parties met on the issue last Friday but it ended inconclusive.
