Dr. Peter Obi, Presidential candidate of Labour Party in Nigeria’s forthcoming 2023 presidential election, has hit at the nation’s national government for allowing strike embarked upon by lecturers to linger.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the umbrella body of lecturers in Nigeria’s universities has declared total strike after six months of waning strike.
“Our position is that ASUU strike has lingered for far too long. It is unconscionable, worrisome and unacceptable that Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) would allow such an industrial action to become almost intractable to the detriment of our students,” said Obi.
“It’s time for FGN to engage in collaborative negotiations with ASUU, and in good faith,” he added.
However, Obi sees light in the tunnel after Nigeria’s governors decided to wade into the matter.
According to him, “It’s gratifying that our governors have undertaken to mediate on the lingering ASUU strike.
“This is propitious and a remarkable show of leadership. Hopefully, such direct constructive engagement will bring this strike to an end soonest.”
