Muhammadu Buhari has urged ASUU and university-based union leaders to be more sensitive as they make demands.
He blasted incessant strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, saying it is not good for the growth of Nigerian Universities.
He disclosed that strikes and threats of strikes by academic staff unions usually delay the graduation of lots of innocent students.
His words, “Since the inception of my administration in 2015, we have given appreciable priority to education and we will continue, undeterred, to invest substantially in education. Despite the numerous financial and other related challenges, government has not relented in its envisioned determination to ensure that education is revitalized in this country in the awareness that education is key to gaining access to global civilization in the 21st century.
Obviously, industrial actions through strikes are inexorably inimical to the health and progress of any university system. It is particularly worrisome and disheartening to note the grievous loss in time and learning hours by our young men and women in their quest to graduate and join the nation building effort.”
