The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, says the union’s strike would have been addressed earlier if politicians’ children attend public universities in the country.

Professor Osodeke spoke yesterday during an interview on Channels Television.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 over the federal government’s failure to honour an agreement on issues bordering on funding of universities, as well as salaries and allowances of lecturers.

Earlier, newsmen reported that President Muhammadu Buhari has given the Minister of Education Malam Adamu Adamu, two weeks to resolve issues of contention regarding the ASUU strike.

Reacting to President’s directive, the ASUU president said the two-week ultimatum is too long, and that the union can suspend its strike in less than two days if the federal government honours its agreement with the union.
