He said the meeting with ASUU and other critical stakeholders was geared towards finding a lasting solution to the lingering strike embarked upon by ASUU

According to him, the House of Reps is deeply concerned about the strike which seems to have defied all efforts made to find a solution.

He added that the House was concerned there had been no agreement reached between the Federal Government and the striking university lecturers.

He said that the House was more worried about the negative consequences of the strike on the future and quality of education of the teeming youths.

He said the youth had been kept at home for the past six months despite the intervention of the House and several well-meaning Nigerians overtime to see that the matter was resolved.

“In the light of the foregoing, the House hereby request for another opportunity to come together with stakeholders and leadership of ASUU to seek an amicable resolution,” he said.

He said that this was without prejudice to the fact that the matter was already in the Industrial Court.
