President Muhammadu Buhari says negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has got to a point where the union ought to call off the ongoing strike.

The president said continuing the strike was counterproductive and undermining the nation’s development of human capital.

Mr Buhari made the call on Friday in Maiduguri at the maiden Special Convocation Ceremony and conferment of Honourary Degree of Doctor of Letters by the University of Maiduguri on Muhammadu Indimi, Chairman, Oriental Energy Resources Ltd.

The president was represented by his Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim Gambari.

“In this regard, I want to convey President Muhammadu Buhari’s call for ASUU to call off their strike and return to the classroom,” he said.

The vice chancellor of the university, Professor Aliyu Shugaba, urged the federal government, ASUU and other unions in the university to resolve the lingering strike to save the education sector.
