Reps Leadership Reveals Outcome Of Meeting With ASUU

Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila

The members of the House of Representatives on Thursday met with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the lingering strike.

Recall that ASUU has been on strike for more than eight months over disagreements with the Federal Government.

Gbajabiamila, in his closing remarks at the end of the meeting that lasted two hours, pleaded with the union to accept whatever the House eventually recommends in good faith.

He said, “I believe this would be, hopefully, the last meeting we are going to have on this matter because from here, the leadership of the House will put together our reports, our recommendations, and our thoughts and take them to Mr President.

“I am hoping that whatever we have done, ASUU will accept it in good faith—this is an independent arm of the government—and that the government will accept it in good faith as well so that our children can return to school, which is what this is all about.”
