The people Democratic Party(PDP) Presidential candidate- Atiku Abubakar, says he has become worried about the lingering ASUU strike, saying that the strike can affect the future of Nigerian undergraduates.
This was revealed by the spokesperson of his campaign council- Kola ologbondiyan.
The presidential candidate offered hope to the striking lecturers saying that measures have been put in place to tackle labour related issues and prevent incessant strike if elected president.
This was his statement:
“Knowing the importance of education and youth development to national cohesion, stability, development and economic prosperity, Abubakar has already articulated a clear and practical roadmap towards resolving all issues hampering education in Nigeria in his policy document.”
“Our candidate has made ample provisions for enhanced welfare packages, research grants, better teaching and learning environment as well as a strong synergy between the union and government towards a harmonious working environment.
“The PPCO therefore urges Nigerians not to despair but to continue to rally behind Atiku Abubakar in the all-important mission of rescuing our nation,’’ he said.
