Former Senior Special Assistance to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Youths and students Affair, Comrade Jude Imagwe on Wednesday, appealed to striking public university lecturers to call off their over 6-month old industrial action and resume classes.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, have been on strike since February 2022 following the failure of Federal Government to fulfill agreements reached with the lecturers.
He, expressed disappointment at the protracted strike and the insensitivity with which the future of Nigerian youths was being treated.
He, however, said ASUU should not see calling off the strike as a mark of weakness but as a demonstration of their patriotism and commitment to better the lot of Nigerian students.
The former NANS President wondered why there seems to be no end to their demands in spite of the ASUU firm commitment to solve the problem instead FG have not show any honest commitments. Rather making promises and shifting the date.
We all are in agreement that something drastic needs to be done to salvage the education sector.
“The Nigerian student has suffered enough and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) should sheathe their sword by calling off the strike because Buhari led Government have not demonstrated anything that should make any union trust them, They have shown zero value to education,” he said.
