ASUU: Minister of Education stormed out, despite Buhari’s order to resolve the strike

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, is said to be currently out of the country as the ASUU strike continues.

Adamu is in charge of negotiations between the Federal Government and striking university unions.

However, a source close to the minister, who did not want his name in print due to the sensitive nature of the matter, said Adamu is expected back in the country on September 2.

The ministry’s spokesperson, Ben Goong, did not immediately respond to inquiries by The PUNCH about the details of the minister’s travels.

The PUNCH reports that ASUU has on Monday February 14, 2022 announced the commencement of an indefinite strike at the University of Lagos.

In an attempt to end the strike, the Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, led conciliatory meetings between the union and the government.

However, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), some weeks ago directed Adamu to take over negotiations.

Adamu recently noted during a press briefing that the government would not pay the union for the months it did not work and the union however remained adamant.
