The minister of state for education, Festus Keyamo, has blamed the strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on previous administrations.
Kayamo stated this in an interview with Trust TV on Monday, August 15, 2022.
Describing the previous administration as irresponsible, the minister noted that the strike was not the fault of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Imagine how irresponsible a government can be when they went into agreements with ASUU and signed conditions that they couldn’t fulfil and that is why ASUU is on strike,” Keyamo said.
“So let us tell Nigerians that ASUU is not on strike because APC signed an agreement with them.” It was the PDP that signed the agreement, “he announced.”
The ongoing strike commenced on February 14, 2022.
Several meetings between the federal government and the union have continued to meet a brick wall.
