The House of Representatives is to meet with the Academic Staff Union of University -ASUU and other stakeholders to find a lasting solution to the lingering strike embarked upon by the union.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Clerk of the House of Representatives, Yahaya Danzaria today in Abuja. He said the meeting would take place on Tuesday at the National Assembly, the House of Representatives wing.
According Danzaria, the meeting with ASUU and other critical stakeholders was geared towards finding a lasting solution to the lingering strike embarked upon by ASUU. He said that the House of Representatives is deeply concerned about the renewed strike which seems to have defied all efforts made to find a solution.
He said that the House was concerned there had been no agreement reached between the Federal Government and the striking University lecturers. The clerk noted that the House was more worried about the negative consequences of the strike on the future and quality of education of the teeming youths.
He lamented that the youth had been kept at home for the past six months despite the intervention of the House and several well-meaning Nigerians over time to see that the matter was resolved.
