ASUU Strike: Garba Shehu tells parents to assist FG in begging ASUU

The presidential spokesman Garba Shehu told parents to join the Federal Government in appealing to ASUU to suspend the ongoing strike.

He was speaking on Saturday on the sidelines of the 11th graduation ceremony of Glisten International Academy in Abuja.


Reacting to the recent extension of the ASUU strike by the striking lecturer, Shehu said the FG was doing everything in its power to end the strike and called on parents to support the government’s effort by begging ASUU.

“It came like a bolt in the sky. We are shocked because it came at a time the president is giving full commitment to resolving the ASUU strike and having the students and teachers back in the school,” he said.

“The extension, I believe, should not have been done because the spirit in which the government now is trying to resolve the problems of ASUU is such that there should also be a benefit of the doubt in favour of the government on the part of ASUU.

“The strike is unnecessarily extended, and this should not have been the case.

“I want to advise parents to join the government in begging ASUU to end this strike, as the government is doing its part and parents are worried, and they should start talking to ASUU.”

Shehu’s son was one of the graduates at the Glisten International Academy ceremony, and he seized the opportunity to urge the students to make informed choices on furthering their education.

“For the graduating students, I want to say that they have a major decision to make, which is going to the next level in their education pursuit,” he said.

“You can see that a lot of foreign institutions are extending invitations to the students at discounted rates to study overseas.

“I will say that Nigerian universities are equally as good and even better, and we are hoping that we will be able to stabilise the university education in the country so that parents don’t have to pay exorbitantly to educate their children abroad.

“University education in Nigeria should be the best for our children.”
