The Academic Staff Union of Universities denied media reports that stated that the union planned to boycott negotiations with the Federal Government.
A member of the National Executive Council and the Chairperson of ASUU, Federal University of Technology Minna, Dr Gbolahan Bolarin, who spoke debunked this.
Some media reports had quoted some sources who claimed that ASUU had discussed during its NEC meeting to boycott further negotiations with the government.
