The Federal Government has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off its six-month-old strike.

Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, urged ASUU to call off the strike and embrace dialogue.

Speaking at the 2022 police meeting on admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria held in Abuja, the minister said the strike should be called off in the interest of students.

According to Adamu, embracing dialogue is the only solution to the impasse.

He said: “I urge the leadership of tertiary institutions to partner with the Federal Government in its frantic efforts at restoring industrial harmony in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It is clear that a stable academic calendar is required for quality education and development in Nigeria.

This is coming at a time President Muhammadu Buhari urged the union to consider the future of students and call off the ongoing industrial action.
