Buhari Tells ASUU To Call Off Strike

On Thursday, President Muhammadu Buhari called on members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to consider the plight of students and call off their ongoing strike.

He made the call at the 19th National Productivity Day and the conferment of the National Productivity Order of Merit Award to 48 eminent Nigerians and organizations in both the public and private sectors.

He also appealed to students to be patient.

ASUU had on February 14 declared a one-month warning strike to protest the non-implementation of its demands by the federal government.
 
But on March 14, the union extended the industrial action by eight weeks, citing the government’s failure to fully address its demands.
 
The union also extended the strike by another 12 weeks on Monday.
 
The union had in a statement on Monday, said since the President’s directive was issued, no meeting had been held by the concerned officials to resolve the conflicts.
 
It also said the failure of the government to show concern about its demands forced it to extend the three-month-old strike by another three months.
