Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said negotiation for the release of some lecturers of the University of Maiduguri, who were abducted by Boko Haram insurgents, was ongoing.
He said the Federal Government had urged the lecturers’ union to give it some time.
“The government has asked us to give them some time. Our members are working with them. We have also given them our suggestions, and they have told us to give them time.
“We are monitoring the efforts. The government did not give us the full details. But you recall that the service chiefs were also asked to relocate to Borno. So efforts are on.”
The Lagos State Government on Sunday unveiled its roadmap targeted at maintaining and rehabilitating roads across the State as well as comprehensive drainage maintenance and flood control programme between August and December 2017.
