I will end ASUU strike on my first day in office as president, says Atiku




The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar, has said he would end the lingering strike by university lecturers in the country on his first day in office as the country’s president.

Mr Atiku made this disclosure in Lagos , Sunday evening , at the Silverbird Man of the Year event .

He said the industrial action which had denied university students in the country access to education for a period running into four months was a  disgraceful and thus will receive his first attention as president if voted into office in the February 16 presidential election .

“I am aghast that as I speak , our students across the nation are not being educated due to the ASUU strike caused by an unresolved debate of about N60billion .
“If I get the job I am seeking, my first task on day one – along with naming my cabinet – will be to end this disgraceful strike and get our students back to their studies,” he said.
