“University Strikes Won’t Happen Again,” Tinubu assures students

Posted by

Under his direction, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu promised to put an end to university strikes.

He promised to stop student strikes and reverse the contentious 40% Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) cut from government-owned universities.

Tinubu underlined his dedication to finding solutions to the problems facing the education sector and declared that his administration will place a higher priority on communication than on going on strike.

Speaking at the convocation ceremony of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Tinubu reaffirmed his commitment to addressing issues in the education sector through the lens of Prof. King-David Terna Yawe, a visiting professor at the National Universities Commission (NUC) and a former president of the West Africa College of Surgeon.

As he stated;

“I would like to urge all of our university’s unions to work with the government to ensure a peaceful and tranquil environment on our campuses in order to deliver the necessary development.”

“We will make sure that motivating activities are implemented to guarantee increased productivity on our end.”

“As the government works hard to raise the bar of a conducive teaching and learning environment, reciprocative actions would be expected from our universities.”

“Much is expected of him to whom much is given. Strike activities are not as effective as constructive engagements, patience, and dialogue. Industrial discord just serves to prolong the school year, disturb daily life, and squander time.

“Therefore, before considering strike actions as a last resort, all avenues for dialogue must be explored and exhausted.”
