After the agreement between FG and ASUU made to cut the ongoing strike, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, revealed that he will do anything within his power to make sure the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) does not embark on another strike.
This was stated on Wednesday by Ngige, while speaking on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
His three children were affected with the strike that happened for nine-month industrial action embarked by ASUU, he said.
“I will not give ASUU the opportunity to go on strike. Because I have three biological children that suffered from this imbroglio that we found ourselves in and about 15 people on my scholarship in Nigerian Universities.
“I am a committed parents. I am involved, more than some ASUU members because my three biological children are here in Nigerian Universities, even went to secondary school here. Two of them are American citizens and I had the option of leaving them to go study in America and enjoy the free education or whatever, but I didn’t, Ngige said.
Ngige remarks came hours after ASUU called off it strike, ending a protracted industrial action that started in March.
