In the spirit of this year’s International Workers’ Day, Atiku Abubakar, the presidential aspirant under the platform of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has demanded swift resolution to the ongoing furore between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Atiku, in a statement on Sunday, charged concerned authorities to embrace approaches which can prevent recurrent industrial actions.
“I appeal to the federal and state governments to work harder to bring the Academic Staff Union of Universities and other striking labour unions back to negotiation table in the interest of the Nigerian youth and the educational system of the country, which is dying gradually due to these incessant labour unrests”.
The former Vice President also bemoaned the debilitating conditions under which Nigerian workers operate in the country, urging the Federal Government to ensure better welfare for them.
“I am concerned that salaries have remained static, food scarcity and inflation abound everywhere, children are out of schools due to no fault of yours, farmers can no longer go to farm for fear of bandits, traders cannot commute freely without being abducted, no energy to power industries and companies are shutting down geometrically; all conspired the burden on the citizenry.”
He however, charged Nigerian workers “to adopt new approach to industrial actions and dispute resolution by pursuing labour-friendly policies and positions that will guarantee improved national productivity and better working conditions”.
