President Goodluck Jonathan will on
Monday, November 4, meet with the
leadership of ASUU at the Presidential

This was part of the resolutions of the
meeting between the ASUU leadership, Vice
President Namadi Sambo and the
Supervising Minister of Education on
Tuesday as was first reported by this

An official of the Vice President's office
who pleaded anonymity told Scan News
that all hands are now on deck to ensure
that the universities resume next week.

The official stated that the Vice President
and the Supervising Minister of Education
have made head-way in resolving the
strike, but the final involvement of the
President is to show ASUU that there is the
commitment of the Federal Government at
the highest level.

It was learnt that the President has been
fully briefed on steps taken by Vice
President Namadi Sambo and the
Supervising Minister of Education to get to
this point.

It was learnt that the President will at
next Monday's meeting present to the ASUU
leadership the administration's last
concession for them to call off the
prolonged strike.

A source at the Presidential Villa noted
that if ASUU fails to call off, the Federal
Government will then resort to plan B,
which will be to compulsorily open the
universities, using the instrumentality of
the governing councils and the school

Already, most of the governing councils of
the universities have started meeting to
work out modalities for the compulsory re-opening of the universities should ASUU fail
to honour the personal request of President

Scan News gathered that the Supervising
Minister of Education, Barr.

Nyesom Wike and the Vice Chancellors of
Public Universities also discussed the re-opening of the schools last Monday. Most
of the Vice Chancellors suggested the
compulsory re-opening of the schools,
should the last ditch efforts fail.

It was gathered that security report
available to the Presidency may have
necessitated this line of action to salvage
the universities system from the direction
it is facing at present.
