Senate calls for patience, continuous dialogue over ASUU strike
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Sabi Abdullahi, has called for patience as the Federal Government and ASUU seek an amicable solution to the strike embarked upon by the lecturers.
Sabi said this in a telephone interview with The PUNCH in Abuja on Tuesday.
He said the Senate, being a responsible institution, was concerned about the crisis and was intervening in the dispute to assist in bringing about a lasting solution to the crisis in the education sector.
He stated, “If you remember, Senator Barau Jibrin has been on this matter despite the fact that we are on recess. This issue is about continuous engagement but as you know, the bulk of the issue is not with us (The Senate).
“I will just call on Nigerians to be patient with us because of this holiday. I am sure after Sallah, when we are all on the ground, things will begin to take shape.”
