President Buhari has pleaded with various labour unions in the country to lessen their agitations to help his administration to concentrate.
He spoke during a meeting with the executive committee of the National Association of Nigerian Students at the State House in Abuja yesterday.
The president was very specific in his address as he pleaded with ASUU to appreciate his administration and go back to work.
“In three-and-a-half years, we have improved tremendously on what we met. We are trying to do infrastructure.
Buhari promised to ensure ASUU ends its strike “so that they don’t encroach on your efforts to qualify (graduate) in time.”
“There is a tendency for you to think that you can do better than anybody, but it is very good for you to know the facts that leadership entails”, he added.
However, he assured labour unions that he meant well for Nigeria by focusing more on rebuilding collapsed infrastructure for now.
Speaking earlier, NANS President, Danielson Bamidele-Akpan, praised the administration’s efforts in tackling insurgency in the North-East.
NANS also sought urgent government intervention to end the ongoing strike by ASUU.
