Again, FG begs ASUU to end strike
The Federal Government has yet beg ASUU to end their long striking strike which have denied Nigerian youths being in school for the past four months. The Vice President, who is the Chairman of the Federal Government team negotiating with ASUU said on the occasion, “ASUU wants the Federal Government to shift its positions. We have already done that.
It is now the turn of ASUU to shift its position and call off the strike in order to save the education sector from deteriorating.
Sambo said that Federal Government had intervened in the funding of universities through TETFUND which is an indication that government believes its transformation agenda can only be realised through sound education. He disclosed that about N2.2 billion has been approved for the Bauchi State University as special intervention fund by the Federal Government.
He pledged Federal Government’s continued support and partnership with Bauchi State on education which is the thrust of President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation agenda saying that no nation would grow without education.
“We will continue to provide education by providing conducive teaching and learning environment to all the people.
