The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on Tuesday, progressed in their negotiations to end the ongoing two weeks warning strike by the lecturers.
However, the strike continues as ASUU said it would have to take the proposals to its members for review and possible approval.
Neither party provided detailed information of the agreement.
However, the labour minister, Chris Ngige, said the government had tabled a new proposal regarding the agreement on the Integrated Payroll Personal Information System (IPPIS).
The meeting which started 3:30 p.m. ended at about 11:01 pm.
The two-week warning strike which the union declared would elapse on Monday next week.
