The Federal government has asked students and parents for forgiveness after the eight-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, was suspended.  

Recall that the leadership of ASUU yesterday conditionally suspended the industrial action on Friday.  

Reacting, the Ministry of Labour in a statement by the Deputy Director of Press, Oladije Oshundun, thanked all those who participated in bringing an end to the strike.

The statement partly read, “Now that ASUU has decided to obey the judgment of the National Industrial Court by calling off the devastating action, we apologize to all students and parents, of which the Honorable Minister is one, for this unduly prolonged strike, which is unwarranted ab initio.”

It added that “a groundwork is being laid, of which we are confident, will save Nigerians, this unpalatable experience of incessant strikes in future.”
