President Buhari Urges ASUU To Suspend Strike 3

President Muhammadu Buhari has called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to suspend its strike action.

According to Vanguard, Buhari made this call during the 3rd Convocation Ceremony of the Alex Ekwueme-Federal University, Ndufu-Alike, Ikwo, Ebonyi state on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

He stated that he’s aware of the inherent challenges being faced by that education sector, he pledged that his administration will continue to support the nation’s educational sector with available limited resources. Buhari said:

“We are not unmindful of the funding challenge faced by the education sector, occasioned by dwindling resources and other competing national needs.

“We will, however, continue doing the needful to improve the nation’s educational sector within available, limited resources.

“We will continue providing the specific infrastructure through annual appropriation and other interventions such as the Tertiary Education Trust (TET) Fund, NEEDS assessment, among others.

“Universities have critical roles to play in nation building as they must justify their establishment through excellent, production-based research activities, innovative ideas, empowerment of youths among others.”

The President was represented at the event by the Deputy Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Victor Onuoha.
