Following the suspension of ASUU strike, Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar welcome the decision of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call-off the over five month old strike.

Atiku also called for the convening of an education summit to chart the way forward for the nation’s failing education sector.

He made the suggestion in a statement by his Media Office in response to the call-off of the strike by ASUU over non-implementation of the 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.

“It has become imperative for ASUU, the federal government and other stakeholders to put in a place a mechanism for addressing crisis of this nature so that our students and their parents will not be visited with prolonged closure of our universities in future with its concomitant effects,” Atiku said.

He noted that though the suspension of the strike is coming late, but said the willingness of both ASUU and government to find a common ground in the interest of Nigerian university students in particular and the nation’s education sector in general should be appreciated.
