The office of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has reacted to news reports that he is now leading Federal Government negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, saying this is inaccurate, .

According to a statement signed by Laolu Akand, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, “media reports seemed to have misrepresented what Labor and Employment Minister, Dr. Chris Ngige meant when he spoke with reporters about the negotiations after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.”

“The Vice President, as contained in the statement, had a discussion after FEC with both the Labour Minister and Education Minister, Malam Adamu Adamu around the issues, but has not taken over the negotiations as widely reported. Both Ministers will continue to lead the FG- ASUU talks.”

The Federal Government, according to the statement, “continues to diligently pursue a prompt resolution of this dispute and is confident the matter would be resolved.”
