The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to show mercy on university students by quickly meeting the demands of the union.

The union said it embarked on the strike to make the ruling class responsible for the future of Nigerian children.

ASUU, in a release signed by the Chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, described the call by the Labour Minister, Chris Ngige, on the union to have mercy on students and call off its strike “a merciless utterance.”

According to Omole, the statement by the minister exposed the ruling government insincerity and callousness to the wellbeing of Nigerian students.

According to Omole, the statement by the minister exposed the ruling government insincerity and callousness to the wellbeing of Nigerian students.

ASUU said since government was a continuum, it was regrettable that Chris Ngige who is being paid salaries put in place by previous governments as a minister will say previous governments caused the problem of the strike by signing 2009 agreements.

The ASUU boss who noted that the present government has not shown mercy to education and health sectors of the nation said the union has a genuine concern to truncate the plans of the ruling capitalist to destroy the future of Nigerian youths by not funding education.
