The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has said the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU won’t embark on strike under his watch as president if elected.
He stated this while speaking at the commemoration of the 2022 International Youth Day in Abuja on Friday.
According to him, the most important and fundamental right of any youth is the right to education. He assured Nigerians that ASUU won’t embark on strike under his administration.
He said: “Therefore, I take very strong exception to the strike by ASUU. The inability of the government to resolve that crisis will never happen under a PDP government or administration that I will oversee.
“I have been investing in education for the past 30 years.”
The former Vice President promised to work with the university authorities in bringing to an end the incessant strike.
“I believe the PDP provides the best platform for you to actualize your individual, collective aspirations.”
