As the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike lingers in the country, the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has cautioned the Federal Government against sanctioning the lecturers’ professional body.

ConsumerConnect reports the NGF said the Federal Government should rather resolve the contentious issues with the lecturers in the interest of the students in particular and Nigeria as a whole.

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State and Chairman of NGF, made this appeal while speaking  after the forum’s meeting Thursday, September 29, 2022, in Abuja, FCT.

ASUU began the current industrial action since February 2022, while several efforts at resolving the logjam have not yielded expected positive results.

During the NGF meeting, President Muhammadu Buhari, represented by his deputy, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), commissioned a multi-billion Naira NGF Complex at Maitama, Abuja.
