President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, blamed lecturers for the eight-month long strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Buhari, during a security meeting with the 36 governors in Abuja on Tuesday, said lecturers have failed to consider the larger challenges facing the country, which has resulted in the prolonged strike.
The President said the government on its part conceded something but lecturers have refused to be considerate.
The president said:
”Lecturers had not taken into consideration the larger challenges facing the country.
“Government conceded something. The problem is that they refused to look at the problem of the whole country. The Minister of Labour is working hard at it.
“It is amazing how ASUU will stay out of classrooms for so long. There’s a need for our elites to understand the challenges facing the country,”
The Union went on strike in March this year over demands for more funding for public universities and renegotiation of the 2009 FG/ASUU agreement amongst other demands. The union is still on strike.
