ASUU: Adamu jets out, despite Buhari’s mandate to resolve strike

Education Minister Adamu Adamu, whom President Muhammadu Buhari mandated to lead talks on the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has reportedly jetted out of Nigeria without meaningful offers to resolve the stalemate.

Mouthpiece NGR gathered that source close to Adamu, who did not want his named mentioned because of the sensitive nature of the matter, confirmed the junket and told The PUNCH Adamu is expected back on 2 September.

ASUU plans to declare an indefinite strike on 29 August, backed by its branches in federal and state universities, to escalate an industrial action that began on 14 February after Buhari failed to heed its warnings.
