The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has again extended its strike, and it’s becoming so worrisome to Nigerians.
As regards the above, the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has reacted, stating that his government was able to resolve ASUU’s four months strike in one night.
Jonathan recalled this while speaking at a conference to mark the 70th birthday of Bishop Hassan Kukah, Bishop of Sokoto Diocese in Abuja on Wednesday.
GEJ said, “Now, we are talking about ASUU strike. During my time too, ASUU had four months of strike. I said ‘How can our children stay out of school for four good months?”
He stated how different committees met to solve the issue but achieved no result. He said he had to call a meeting of all the leadership of ASUU and that he presided over the meeting together with his vice president. Adding that the Attorney General was there too.
He noted that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the ministers of education, the labour ministers, the finance ministers and all the people that had to do with the strike were equally present.
“I said that night we must solve the problem.”
He said he believes that him being there would help them do things quickly but that they spent the whole night on it and finished around 5:30 am and the strike was called off.
