Strike : Atiku urges FG to yield to ASUU’s demands in earnest

PDP presidential aspirant, Alh Atiku Abubakar has call on the federal government to yield to ASUU demands in earnest, stressing that the continued stay of students at home was not tenable.

Atiku who is a former Vice President of Nigeria made this call in a series of tweets via his official twitter page on Wednesday.

He wrote: “It is tragic that 18.5 million children are out of school in our country, according to @UNICEF_Nigeria. But it is even more disturbing that 60% of them are girls.”

“This is not acceptable. If children get their education on the streets instead of in schools, it becomes difficult to fulfil their purpose. When you educate the girl child, you educate the family, community and the nation.”

“As a result of the premium I place on education as a life-changer, I’ll reverse this trend by ensuring that our children get much-needed education that will help them find accommodation in my envisaged New Nigeria of #OnePeople with #OneFuture.”

“Meanwhile, the continued stay of university students at home is not tenable. It’s counterproductive and damaging to national development.

Our correspondent reports that Atiku made this call days after ASUU extended its strike by another 12 weeks over the government’s recalcitrant position on the matter
