ASUU: Plead with Lecturers To Call Off Strike – Presidency To Nigerians

Garba Shehu, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said the president was committed to ending the strike.

The Presidency has urged Nigerians to petition the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to end its current strike.

ASUU announced last week that the strike would be extended for another month.

Shehu insisted over the weekend in Abuja that the Federal Government was working to resolve the standoff.

“It came like a bolt in the sky. We are shocked because it came at a time when the president is giving full commitment to resolving the ASUU strike and having the students and teachers back in the school.

“The extension, I believe, should not have been done because the spirit in which the government now is trying to resolve the problems of ASUU is such that there should also be a benefit of the doubt in favour of the government on the part of ASUU.

“The strike is unnecessarily extended and this should not have been the case. I want to advise parents to join the government in begging ASUU to end this strike, as the government is doing its part and parents are worried and they should start talking to ASUU,” he said.
