Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Friday met again with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), saying that deliberations were “fruitful”.
Emerging from the meeting, Gbajabiamila told newsmen that “we just came here for a follow-up, which was supposed to be yesterday, but unfortunately, the President was not around and this is a follow-up.
“We had, once again, very fruitful, good discussions with Mr. President on the pending issue and this matter will be concluded.
You will hear directly from the President, but suffice to say that we had a very good meeting and it will be concluded.”
Pressed to reveal what Nigerians should expect as outcome of the meeting, the Speaker said: “The assurance is that we’ve met with the president, we’ve discussed, it was a positive meeting.
“I think Nigerians will hear directly from Mr. President. We all look forward to it, but we had a good meeting. You can read between the lines.”
