The Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, says the suspension of the strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, is dependent on them calling for the varsity lecturers to be considerate.


NGIGE in an interview yesterday said the ball is in their court, urging them to go and meet the Benimi Briggs Committee and look at what the committee is doing and make further inputs so that the work can be accelerated.


The Former Governor of Anambra, who recently announced his intention to run for President in 2023 reiterated that he cannot make a commitment on when the impasse will be resolved, charging the lecturers to do their part.


The Minister who said he is worried by the incessant strikes in public universities in Nigeria and has not slept in a bid to see that the schools are reopened, revealed that there would be a meeting of all stakeholders next week as part of moves to resolve the lingering strike.
