Supervising Minister of Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike, on Tuesday met with the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Abuja.

It could not be ascertained if the meeting which lasted barely one hour produced desirable results.

The ASUU President, Dr. Nasir Fagge and the minister refused to speak with journalists after the meeting.

Fagge did not respond to questions on the outcome of the meeting and the next line of action of the union.

He simply told one of our correspondents that, “I am not in a position to talk.”

At the meeting were the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie; the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof. Isaac Adewole and a few national officers of the union.

Also, Vice-President Namadi Sambo on Tuesday met briefly with stakeholders in the nation’s education sector.

The stakeholders were led to the meeting which was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja by Wike.

Other members of the delegation included Okojie and Adewole.

At the end of the brief session, none of the participants agreed to speak with journalists when approached.

Other members of the team who came out of the venue of the meeting a few minutes before Wike came out had claimed that the minister would address journalists.

But Wike refused to answer questions when he emerged from the Vice President’s office.

He joined other members of the team in a brief consultation at the forecourt of the Presidential Villa before he hurriedly jumped into his waiting car.

No official statement was also issued by the Vice President’s office on the meeting.
