Buhari gives Minister of Education Adamu 2-weeks ultimatum to resolve ASUU strike


Mallam Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, has been ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari to end the protracted strike by the four university-based unions and report back to him in two weeks.

After receiving briefings from the pertinent government Ministries, Agencies, and Departments involved in settling the standoff with the university unions on Tuesday, Buhari issued the decision.

Recall that on February 14 the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, began a one-month warning strike. Subsequently, other unions withdrew their services due to what they claimed was the federal government's failure to meet their demands.

The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Educational Institutions, NASU, and the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, are the other three unions that went on strike.
The President instructed the Minister of Education to see that the deadlock was resolved within two weeks and to report back to him after hearing from the pertinent MDAs directly concerned.

Mallam Adamu, the minister of education, Dr. Zainab Ahmed, the minister of finance, budget, and national planning, Senator Ngige, Isa Pantami, the minister of communications and digital economy, Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, the chairman of the national salaries income and wages commission, Ekpo Nta, and Ben Akabueze, the director-general of the budget office, were all present at the meeting.
