The meeting is scheduled to hold on Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at the NUC headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

NUC Executive Secretary, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, announced the meeting in a notice on Tuesday.

The chancellors will engage Adamu on the contentious issues and how to end the industrial action.

Rasheed reminded the officials that the ASUU strike led to the closure of the institutions since February 14.

He said non-teaching unions suspended theirs on 24th August, 2022, while a final decision is being awaited from ASUU.

“It has become necessary for the governing councils and the management of the universities to be briefed on the decisions and actions taken by the Federal Government so far.

“This is to allow for a well-coordinated review of the situation, including building consensus around succeeding actions”, Rasheed added.
