President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to end the ongoing industrial strike.

Buhari also urged ASUU to consider the plight of the students by calling off and return to classroom.

The President made the appeal at the 19th National Productivity Day Celebration and Conferment of National Productivity Order of Merit Award, held at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja.

He also urged the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, to exercise patience as the government tries to resolve the crisis.

Buhari recalled his February 1 directive to His Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, the Ministers of Education and Labour and Employment, Adamu Adamu and Chris Ngige, respectively, to address the concerns of the striking aggrieved workers’ unions.
