Education minister expresses shock over ASUU strike

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has expressed surprise at the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ one-month strike, which began on Monday.
As he stated, if ASUU and the FG have not achieved an agreement after multiple rounds of negotiations, the fault is no longer the government’s.
This was Adamu’s response to questions from State House Correspondents shortly after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
“Unfortunately, ASUU has gone on strike, and I am looking for them because all of the concerns are being solved,” he said.
“The last thing that happened was that our committee looked at their demands but there are renegotiations going on. They submitted a draft agreement which the ministry is looking at.”
The Minister said that ASUU’s decision came abruptly amidst ongoing negotiations.
Speaking of ASUU’s draft agreement, he said, “A committee is looking at it.
Immediately it finishes, the government is meant to announce what it had accepted.
Then suddenly, I heard them going on strike.”
