Federal Government Apologises To Nigerians As ASUU Ends Strike

Students, parents and other stakeholders, yesterday, expressed mixed feelings over the suspension of the eight-month-old strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU).

While some students expressed happiness that they would be going back to school following the suspension of the industrial action, others rued lost academic time and the additional costs they would have to bear to continue with their studies.

Many parents also said they were happy that their children would be returning to school, but appealed to the Federal Government to take steps that would forestall a reoccurrence.

Meanwhile, the Federal Government, yesterday, apologised to Nigerians over the delay in resolving the dispute, explaining that it dragged ASUU to court because negotiations failed.

Dandal Kura Radio report that ASUU had in a press statement in the early hours of yesterday announced the suspension of the strike and directed its members to resume all services hitherto withdrawn with effect from 12 Noon on October 14, 2022.

The statement, which was signed by the National President of the union, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, however, noted that the issues in its dispute with the Federal Government were not well addressed.
