Strike will improve education - ASUU

ASUU president, Dr Nasir Fagge, on Tuesday, said the current strike by lecturers of public universities in the country was a sacrifice for better things to come.
Fagge told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that unless the deficits in the education sector, especially the university system, were addressed once and for all, there would be no development.
According to Fagge, it was regrettable that the strike was protracted, adding that the decision of ASUU to remain adamant until its demands were fully met could seem uncomfortable and worrisome.
“I sincerely want to call on all concerned, especially students and parents, to bear with us, as well as join hands with us in the struggle to right the wrongs in our education sector once and for all, for the good of us all and that of the country.
“I know it is quite a difficult time for us, but I also want to state that what we are doing is for our own good, as well as ensure that strikes become rare as a weapon to get things done in our system,” he said.
Fagge, however, lauded the supervising education minister, Wike, for finding time to meet with the executive committee of ASUU and the committee of vice chancellors and other stakeholders for their concern.
