President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to reconsider their stand on the lingering strike.



Hence, ASUU should consider the long-term effect on students and the generational consequences on families, the educational system, and the future development of the country. President Buhari said "enough is enough."

He spoke while receiving governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), legislators, and political leaders at his residence in Daura, Katsina State, on Monday.

The president lamented that the strike was already taking a toll on the psychology of parents, students, and other stakeholders, throwing up many moral issues that already beg for attention.

“We hope that ASUU will sympathise with the people on the prolonged strike." Truly, enough is enough to keep students at home. Don’t hurt the next generation for goodness sake.
“Colonial-type education was geared towards producing workers in government. Those jobs are no longer there. Our young people should get an education to prepare them for self-employment. Education is now for the sake of education.
“Through technology, we are much more efficient. "We should encourage our children to get an education, not only to look for government jobs,” he added.
