Reps will meet with ASUU and stakeholders on Tuesday to discuss a potential strike end
The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) and other stakeholders will meet with the House of Representatives to discuss a long-term solution to the union’s ongoing strike.
This information may be found in a statement made on Monday in Abuja by Mr. Yahaya Danzaria, the Clerk of the House of Representatives.
He announced that the meeting would be held at the National Assembly’s House of Representatives branch on Tuesday.
He stated that the goal of the meeting with ASUU and other important stakeholders was to find a long-term resolution to the ongoing strike that ASUU has been conducting.
According to him, the strike appears to have defied all attempts to find a resolution, and the House of Representatives is extremely concerned about it.
The House, he continued, was worried that the Federal Government and the lecturers on strike had not found a compromise.
He claimed that the House was more concerned about how the strike would affect the future and educational standards of the large population of young people.
He claimed that despite the House’s intervention and the efforts of other well-meaning Nigerians, the youth had been kept at home for the previous six months.
In view of the aforementioned, the House hereby requests another chance to meet with stakeholders and the ASUU leadership in order to pursue a peaceful conclusion.
Despite the fact that the case was already before the Industrial Court, he claimed that this was without prejudice.
