We Will Order Vice-chancellors To Re-open Varsities – Ngige

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Wednesday, noted that the government would order vice-chancellors to re-open universities.

The minister made this known in a statement made available to our correspondent on Wednesday night.

“The court ruling does not preclude us from going on with further negotiation and consultations. The pro-chancellors met Mr President and made some demands, such as topping up government offers and seeing whether there could be some bailout.

Mr President said in considering it, he will consult stakeholders. So, he is going to consult everybody.”

Ngige also noted that he welcomed the intervention of the House of Representatives in the ASUU imbroglio, saying he was happy that the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila said they were going to meet the President.
