The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has promised to continue to work hard to ensure that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Federal Government returned to the negotiating table.
The NLC President, Abdulwaheed Omar, told journalist in Abuja on Tuesday that there was the need to find a lasting solution to incessant strikes in the country to ensure national development.
He called on both government and the striking lecturers to resume negotiations, especially in the interest of the students and for the future of the country.
"We are going to approach them and we are also going to approach federal government to ensure that they resume negotiations.
"If in a given year it puts N100 billion in the budget ASUU would have seen that there is goodwill, government is determined, only that they don’t have sufficient fund to provide the N400 billion. They would have taken it."
While commending health workers for suspending their strike, he said the recent development, where striking lecturers decided to withdraw from negotiations with federal government, was not healthy for the country.
The agreement was due for re-negotiation in 2004 but it didn’t take place until 2007 and lasted more than two years to produce the 2009 agreement, which was freely entered into by ASUU and government.
