ASUU strike: You'll Hear Directly From President - Gbajabiamila

Indications have emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari would soon be speaking to the public on the way forward on the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) prolonged strike.

Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, dropped this hint on Friday after the follow-up meeting he led some members of the Lower Chambers of the National Assembly to hold with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The House of Representatives’ delegation met with Buhari on Tuesday with a report from previous engagements with ASUU and government representatives. 

The President assured the team he would be studying the report in order to arrive at a decision.

However, after Friday's meeting with the President, the Speaker said Nigerians would be hearing the outcome of the meeting directly from the President. 

He said: "We just came here for a follow up, which was supposed to be yesterday, but unfortunately, the President was not around and this is a follow up. We had, once again, very fruitful, good discussions with Mr. President on the pending issue and this matter will be concluded. 

"You will hear directly from the President, but suffice to say that we had a very good meeting and it will be concluded."

Asked what assurance he had for Nigerians from the meeting, he said "the assurance is that we’ve met with the president, we've discussed, it was a positive meeting. 

"I think Nigerians will hear directly from Mr. President. We all look forward to it but we had a good meeting. You can read between the lines."
