ASUU strike Nigerians have no good reason to be disappointed – FG. According to the Federal Government, Nigerians have no justification for being dissatisfied with its attempts to get the university lecturers back in the classroom.
On Wednesday, Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, made the statement while participating on Politics Today on Channels Television.
The Minister stated that since the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike started in February of this year, the government had done everything in its power to support them.
He said that the union would change its position in favor of the students and the entire nation by asserting that no demand could be fully satisfied.
If Nigerians are unhappy, he asserted, “I don’t believe they have very solid grounds to be unhappy with the administration on this.”
“Why should they feel let down? Please explain how, in your perspective, the government is to blame and not the union.
“You can only hold the federal government accountable if it refuses to perform its job, which is to make an offer to appease the demands of the people. No government is capable of meeting every demand completely, he added.
According to DAILY POST, public university students have been on strike for at least seven months and have pledged to keep striking until their demands are completely satisfied.
