The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has said government is not aware of the grounds for the planned strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
A statement by the ministry on Friday said ASUU had not officially communicated such decision.
The terse statement added: “When we do so, we shall look into the matter, the ground of agitation by ASUU, this will include of course dialoguing with both parties; we are conciliators and be rest assured we are working relentlessly to ensure industrial harmony.”
The ASUU had earlier in the week threatened to embark on a nationwide strike to press home its demands for the implementation of its 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.
