By Ismail Auwal

The Progressive Governors’ Forum has begged the Academic Satff Union of Universities (ASUU) to suspend the ongoing indefinite strike.

The Chairman of the forum and Kebbi State governor, Atiku Bagudu,  on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja called on ASUU to be mindful of the future of the next generation.

When we met Buhari in Daura, he didn’t play the blame game. He spoke as a father and I think he even went further to say that even if ASUU had been offended, they should please think about our next generation,” Bagudu said.
“I think that this is the best statesmanly statement that can come and we are all appealing to ASUU in particular and indeed all stakeholders.”


“Let us do what will ensure that we don’t miss out. Nigeria is competing with other countries, we do not have the luxury of time so we will continue to urge all stakeholders.”


On the reason for the visit, he said the governors said that came to express their happiness that the Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo  has recovered from a serious medical procedure he undertook, and to appreciate him, particularly for showing confidence in yet again the Nigerian medical establishment because he had the procedure here in Nigeria.


“We had the opportunity for him to tell us how capable the team that helped out and also commend that many Nigerians should take steps to find out the amazing opportunities and capacity that is in the medical establishment,” they said.
