Atiku said the government’s inability to resolve the ASUU strike would never happen under his administration.
Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, has spoken about the prolonged ASUU strike.
The politician said the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, won’t embark on strike if he is elected as president.
Atiku claims that the government’s inability to resolve the ASUU strike would never happen under his administration.
He spoke at the commemoration of the 2022 International Youth Day in Abuja on Friday.
Atiku explained that the most important and fundamental right of any youth is the right to education.
In his words:
“Therefore, I take very strong exception to the strike by ASUU. The inability of the government to resolve that crisis will never happen under a PDP government or administration that I will oversee.
“I have been investing in education for the past 30 years.”
He promised to work with the university authorities in bringing to an end the unceasing strike.
“I believe the PDP provides the best platform for you to actualise your individual, collective aspirations,”
ASUU has been on strike since February 14 over the federal government’s impotence to honour their 2009 agreement.
