ASUU strike: Buhari begs lecturers

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, have been begged by President Muhammadu Buhari to end their current strike action.

Appealing to ASUU, Buhari told the body to think about the plight of the students and called off the industrial action.

The appeal was made at the 19th National Productivity Day Celebration and Conferment of National Productivity Order of Merit Award, held at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.

Buhari also urged the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, to exercise patience as the government tries to resolve the crisis.

Buhari recalled his February 1 directive to His Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, the Ministers of Education and Labour and Employment, Adamu Adamu and Chris Ngige, respectively, to address the concerns of the striking aggrieved workers’ unions.

On Monday, ASUU has been on strike since February 20222.

But ASUU on Monday extended its ongoing roll-over strike by another three months.

The body is demanding funding for the revitalisation of public universities, the Earned Academic Allowances, the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) and promotion arrears.

Others include the renegotiation and implementation of the 2009 ASUU-FG Agreement and the inconsistency in the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System.
