Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has lamented the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
Obi described the ongoing strike as “unconscionable, worrisome and unacceptable” and regretted that the Federal Government has not done enough to resolve the contending issues with the university teachers.
He disclosed this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle yesterday.
Obi tweeted, “Nigeria is vastly polarised and wrecked by deep divisions along religious, ethnic and regional lines. There is a staggering level of corruption. Our universities have remained closed for six months.
“While our healthcare system remains almost moribund, power generation and distribution are also at an all-time low.
“Our position is that the ASUU strike has lingered for far too long. It is unconscionable, worrisome and unacceptable that FGN would allow such an industrial action to become almost intractable to the detriment of our students. It’s time for FGN to engage in collaborative negotiations with ASUU, and in good faith.”
