ASUU Will Never Embark on Strike Under My Administration, Atiku Vows

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has said the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, won’t embark on strike if he is elected as president.

Atiku said the government’s inability to resolve the ASUU strike would never happen under his administration.

He spoke at the commemoration of the 2022 International Youth Day in Abuja on Friday.

Atiku stressed that the most important and fundamental right of any youth is the right to education.

He said: “Therefore, I take very strong exception to the strike by ASUU. The inability of the government to resolve that crisis will never happen under a PDP government or administration that I will oversee.

“I have been investing in education for the past 30 years.”

The former Vice President promised to work with the university authorities in bringing to an end the incessant strike.

“I believe the PDP provides the best platform for you to actualise your individual, collective aspirations,” he said.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 over the federal government’s inability to honour their 2009 agreement.
