Monday after 2pm and lasted till after

of the President back to their
members.
The ASUU delegation which comprised

and past presidents Prof. Abdulahi
Sule-Kano, Prof. Dipo Fashina and Prof. Festus Iyayi, President of the
Nigeria Labour Congress, Abdulawahid Omar and that of the Trade. Union
Congress, Bobboi Kaigama, were all smiles as they exited the meeting giving

“And we now have a message
from Mr. President we are going
to take to our members. And we
are expecting that our members
will respond appropriately to the
message of Mr. President.”

going back to the classroom, he
said: “That is up to our members.”
Asked what the message was, he

you. It is for our members.”
If impressed with the message, he

determine that.”

Thy have no option but to agree with FG or risk a forceful reopening of Nigerian Universities.
Enough is enough. ASUU cannot continue to hold the system down continually and expect to be pampered.
Rubbish!

Sincerely, I must commend mr President for the way he handled this ASUU strike. Right from the first day it started, he has deployed subtle negotiations and diplomacy to seek an end to it. The climax of it all was his decision to meet with ASUU directly yesterday.
I understand this is the first time a Nigerian President is engaging in such a direct meeting with ASUU. I can't wait to hear an official announcement suspending the strike.
