ASUU-STRIKE

The House of Representatives said on Thursday that it was ready to approve a supplementary budget if that would end the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The position of the House was made known by the Speaker, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, after the House was briefed on efforts by its Committee on Education to end the strike.
The committee is chaired by Mr. Aminu Suleiman.

The Speaker appealed to the Federal Government and the striking lecturers to quickly reach an understanding and suspend the strike. He observed that Nigeria would pay dearly for the lost academic time in the future if the strike was allowed to continue.

Tambuwal added, “Once again, we call on ASUU and the Federal Government, in this case the Executive Arm of government to please, quickly bring the matter an end. And if there is any need for further appropriations to be made or any law to be amended to meet any of these conditions, the House of Representatives is faithfully ready to expeditious address such requests. Please, we need our students back to their respective schools. I so plead.
