The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has revealed how the ongoing strike can be resolved.
ASUU Professor Emmanuel Osodeke asked the Buhari led-administration to learn from former President Goodluck Jonathan on how to resolve the lingering strike.
Osodeke spoke while appearing on an AIT programme, Focus Nigeria.
He said that the Goodluck administration engaged the union in a 14-hour negotiation to resolve the issue.
Osodeke said the federal government should set up a committee comprising people who love the country and can negotiate dispassionately.
Osodeke said, “Government should for once go the way of Goodluck Jonathan. And in one night, we had that meeting for 14 hours. Open. Both sides were open, no class, no power, no sitting power, and we looked at all the issues and we resolved it within 14 hours.
“If this government can put out a strong team, if the president cannot be there, let him put a strong team together or people who are not part of those who are telling lies presently. People who love this country. They don’t have to be in government. If you can put this thing together and we meet to look at how we can resolve this national problem.”
Recall that the ASUU NEC on Monday extended its six-month strike.
