According to Premium Times, Ogunyemi said the strike could only be called off after the NEC meeting. He however, did not state when the meeting will hold.
“We have had an extensive session, looking at all the issues.
”In view of this, the government has promised to reach us as soon as possible with a written proposal on those areas we need further consultations. And when we receive that, we shall treat accordingly and get back to the appropriate quarters,” Ogunyemi said.

He added that the accountant general and the ministry of finance have confirmed with evidence that N15.4 billion had been released to public universities.
According to Premium Times, Ngige also said President Buhari has approved N20 billion to offset the outstanding arrears of the 2009 to 2012 verified earnings in the universities, adding that earned allowances will be released to ASUU as soon as the process is completed.
The labour Minister also said the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan had an agreement to fund Nigerian Universities with N220 billion annually for six years starting from 2009.
He, however, said that the government would look for resources to meet the commitment adding that ASUU had been offered some token to show good faith.
Public Universities have been shut down since Sunday, November 4, 2018 as ASUU insists strike won't be suspended if government fails to meet its demands.
Hello everybody. I need to talk to all of you. No much introduction. You all that are following me knows me already! What I love doing is comedy and to always make you laugh. You all know that. I never want to type this but I can’t just hold it anymore.
I'm in serious pain. And I am in a great fear because I am not able to focus on my comedy career like before. I am typing this with tears and a lot of depression. If not everybody. I know that some of you knows that I am a NIGERIA NAVY PERSONAL. but before I joined this job, I did not think so deep and I was carried away because of some lies I was told.
Let me keep that for now! I thought as I joined the job I would get more peace but not knowing that I actually sold my peace away. I thought I would be able to do my comedy and acting together with the navy job but it’s not just easy to cope with both. I joined this NAVY on the 7th of March 2018 if you remember very well and I come back to you guys on the 8th of September after I finished my 6month malicious training.
Those that knew me as a celebrity on the training ground those days called me a fool and told me I did not plan well before joining. I was just so depressed those days. And I moved on with faith. Because I just wanted to finished the training and know what next if I would be able to cope with my acting career and the navy. To say the fact . This job has given me a lot of respect but all the same. You guys don’t know wat I am feeling.
Let me tell you the truth. Not that I have the time. Some times I would just sneak out of my office and change up to do videos for you my fans just to remain consistent and never to make you forget Your ANKARAGUCCI. So these days, a captain in the Navy threatens me a lot and told me to pick one. Am I choosing navy or entertainment? That if I am to do the navy Job I must leave acting or else ........... or else what please? for what ? For crying out loud.
I can’t leave this comedy alone. It’s what I have passion for. I have a lot of advert skit now that I never shoot and I lost my Samsung s7 edge last week. I also lost my 31 skits on it .just need to get a solution ASAP. I am not an happy man
