Buhari joins religious leaders begging ASUU to discard strike


President Muhammadu Buhari commenced the week under review with a promise that the Federal Government would honour promises made to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)

This, according to the President, was done to avoid disruptive strikes, ensure ongoing academic programs, and boost funding for educational institutions.

The commitment was made by the President at a meeting with members of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council (NIREC), led by the Co-Chairs, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar, and the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Samson Ayokunle.

On Friday, ASUU raised worries about the Federal Government’s ability to settle the persisting crisis in the education sector, particularly in universities, threatening an extended strike.

However, the President stated that no society which wished itself well neglected its educational system and all its component parts.

He, therefore, commended the leadership of NIREC for intervening in the year-long strike by ASUU and holding consultations with the parties.

Buhari had earlier hosted the 2022 Committee of Business, Political, Media and Civil Society Leaders to a dinner at the State House, Abuja, on Monday.

At the event, the president pledged his commitment to hand over a strong repositioned agriculture-led, diversified home-grown economy, stable democracy and revamped armed and security forces to the next administration.
