On July 11, President Buhari declared that “enough is enough” and urged Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members to end their five-month strike.
While hosting APC governors who paid him a visit at his home in Daura, Katsina state, the president made the call to ASUU. The President expressed concern that the strike’s generational effects on families, the educational system, and the nation’s future development should cause the ASUU leadership to reconsider their stance on the ongoing strike.
The President said the strike had already taken a toll on the psychology of parents, students and other stakeholders, throwing up many moral issues that already beg for attention.
He noted that the future of the country rests on the quality of educational institutions and education, while assuring that the government understands their position, and negotiations should continue, with students in lecture halls.
â€œWe hope that ASUU will sympathise with the people on the prolonged strike. Truly, enough is enough for keeping students at home. Donâ€™t hurt the next generation for goodness sake,â€
