The Union’s president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodoke, disclosed this on Monday after a meeting with the speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.

He said: “Please, let all of us work together to put a beautiful end to this thing we have started so that every Nigerian will be proud that we have universities we can be proud of.

“Once again, I want to thank you, I also extend our appreciation to the president for intervening, I want to appeal that in the future, we should not allow the strike to linger. The strike should not go beyond two days.

“If the way the National Assembly has intervened if we had done that long ago, or those in charge of labour and education had done exactly this, we would not be where we are today. We would not have stayed more than two or three weeks on this strike. There is strike all over the world, the UK, the US, all over, but they don’t allow it to last.

“So, once again, thank you very much and we hope that working together, in the next few days, we can put an end to this particular imbroglio in the Nigerian educational system.”

The meeting was called at the instance of the speaker to brief the union about the intervention of the House with President Muhammadu Buhari on the strike.

Recall that the Appeal Court had last Friday, ordered the union to ask its members to return to work within, after it (the union) appealed an early order by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, NICN, to resume.
