The Federal Government has begged to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to cancel its ongoing strike to put Nigerians students’ mind at rest.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, led that appeal on Tuesday, August 15, in a statement.
Ngige put all the blame on ASUU for not following due process before commencing on the indefinite strike.
“In fact, it was on Monday, August 14, 2017, that the office of the minister received a letter dated August 13, 2017, from ASUU, that is, one full day after it commenced the strike,” the Minister said.
“The Federal Government, therefore, wishes to appeal to ASUU to consider the students who are currently writing degree and promotion examinations, to call off the strike and return to the negotiation table. The Ministry of Labour and Employment will ensure that a time-frame will be tied to the negotiation this time around,” the minister said.
