Strike: Why students should drag ASUU to court- FG


The Federal Government has called on students to file a legal action against the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The call was made by the  the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu while saying that the university lecturers should be dragged to court over the lingering strike action

The Minister made this remark during a press statement issued at the Presidential Villa on Thursday.

According to Adamu, the students are the greatest victims of the prolonged industrial action, adding that the strike is also taking its toll on me country’s economy.

He said: “We are all hit by this strike action, perhaps because students have to spend an extra one year or two, you can say, they are worst hit.

“If you had the chance, or the capacity to measure the effect of that on the economy, the economy is also a victim, parents are also victims.

“Who do you assume will compensate students? The federal government? Probably you should take the leaders of strike unions to court to pay them, probably the court will award damages and then, we’ll see how they pay.
