ASUU Strike: Stop Playing With The Future of Our Youths – Orji Kalu to FG

Orji Uzor Kalu, a former governor of Abia State, has criticized the federal government for its response to the Academic Staff Union of Universities' ongoing strike action.

The Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Kalu, requested that President Muhammadu Buhari take prompt action to put a stop to the protracted industrial action.

The congressman claimed in a statement he published on Wednesday that the professors' ongoing strikes would lower the caliber of graduates.

The young people of Nigeria, who have been at home for more than five months, were being played with, he urged both parties, and they should stop.

The statement reads, “Incessant strikes disrupt the academic calendar, encourage brain drain and contribute significantly to the poor quality of graduates in the country, with far-reaching implications for national development.

“The federal government should urgently take all necessary measures to open a realistic negotiation with ASUU to stop the strike and implement the signed agreements in the interest of our students, their parents, the education sector and the country.

“We must stop playing with the future of our youths”.

Recall that ASUU on February 14, shut down all public universities, protesting the inability of the FG to implement agreements the two parties entered into in previous years.
