Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, has asked the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off its strike.
Adamu, made the call while speaking at the 2022 police meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria, in Abuja.
According to the education minister, the strike which has lasted for more than five months should be called off in consideration of the students who have been at home for so long.
He encouraged ASUU to suspend the strike and embrace dialogue, noting that that was the best way to resolve disputes.
He said: “I urge the leadership of tertiary institutions to partner with the Federal Government in its frantic efforts at restoring industrial harmony in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It is clear that a stable academic calendar is required for quality education and development in Nigeria.
“I also seize this opportunity to appeal to the trade unions in the tertiary education sub-sector to, in the interest of the future of Nigeria, call off the perennial strike and embrace genuine dialogue as a solution to our problems.”
President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday charged Adamuto find a solution to the lingering industrial action by ASUU.
