Nigeria: President Buhari begs varsity lecturers to call off strike

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU to consider the plight of students and call off its ongoing strike.

He made the appeal on Thursday at the 19th National productivity day and conferment of the National Productivity Order of Merit award

The president's appeal comes two days after the union extended its industrial action, accusing the government of unwillingness to address its demands.

President Buhari equally urged students in public tertiary institutions to exercise patience as he says the Government is striving to address the issues in the nation’s university system.
