Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has called for the convening of an education summit to chart the way forward for the nation’s failing education sector. Abubakar said this in response to the suspension of ASUU’s six-month old strike.
The former Vice President, however, hailed the decision of ASUU to suspend the strike and hoped that it would afford all parties the needed opportunity to reassess the nation’s education sector. He urged ASUU and FG to put in place a strong mechanism for resolving crises of this nature so that it would not fester and disrupt academic calendars in the future. “It has become imperative for ASUU, the Federal Government and other stakeholders to put in a place a mechanism for addressing crisis of this nature so that our students and their parents will not be visited with prolonged closure of our universities in future with its concomitant effects,” Mr. Abubakar said.
