ASUU Strike: Students Recruited For #EndSARS Protests — Ngige

 

The Federal Government has lamented that university students who should be in the classrooms have been “recruited” to join the ongoing #EndSARS protests.

It blamed the development on the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this at a reconciliation meeting between the government and ASUU officials on Thursday in Abuja.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Ngige said,

“For the past one week, we have all been on our toes, we have been meeting and we pray that this meeting will yield good fruits.

“We don’t take pleasure to the fact that the children who are supposed to be in school are being recruited into the #EndSARS, #EndStrike, #EndSWAT campaigns.

“As much as possible, we will try to see how we can meet ourselves halfway, so that we can resolve this crisis to the benefits of all and the country at large.”

The minister said that FG has commenced the process of testing the University Transparency Accountability Solution platform created by ASUU.

He said that ASUU members have claimed that the platform will accommodate the peculiarities of the university systems and that the platform will involve three stages of tests to be concluded within the time frame the union gave the government.
