As the strike action embarked by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) shows no early signs of ending, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has raised the hopes of stakeholders in the education sector by saying the strike action may not last long.
According to him, the industrial action embarked upon by ASUU may end in two days.
Adamu said this yesterday in an interview with The Guarduan, the Minister stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has a policy of engaging unions, including ASUU.
“I hope and believe that this would be a one or two days strike. We have a policy of engaging the unions, including ASUU and I think now we are very serious.
“This is the first time in two years that ASUU is declaring a strike,” Adamu said.
Adamu also held a closed-door meeting with the leader of the Federal Government Renegotiation Team, Dr. B. O Babalakin (SAN).
Babalakin had in January, inaugurated the 16-member team to renegotiate the 2009 agreement.
