The Trade Union Congress (TUC) of Nigeria has chided the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, for walking out of a meeting with representatives of the National Association of Nigerian Students to discuss ASUU’s persisting strike.
The TUC disclosed this in a statement signed by its National President, Quadri Olaleye.
The union described the minister’s action as ridiculous just as it threatened to embark on a solidarity strike with ASUU if the impasse was not resolved in two weeks.
“The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria under the leadership of Quadri Olaleye vehemently frowns at the level of condescending attitude exhibited by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, by walking out of the discussion held with the representatives of the NANS, while protesting the continued face-off between the government and members of ASUU, who have paralysed,” the union said.
