The Minister of education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has asked students affected by the ongoing strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to sue the union.
Recall that the union, which has been on strike since February 14, is demanding for the full implementation of the 2009 agreement it signed with the Federal Government, among others.
At a briefing held in Abuja, on Thursday, August 18, the minister was asked if the federal government has plans to compensate students affected by the industrial action.
Responding to the question, Adamu said: “We are all hit by this strike action, perhaps because students have to spend an extra one year or two, you can say, they are worst hit. If you had the chance, or the capacity to measure the effect of that on the economy, the economy is also a victim, parents are also victims.
