Speaker of the House Femi Gbajabiamila met with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday. He was worried about the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Gbajabiamila led the House leadership to the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation's capital, to meet with the President.


During the meeting, he gave several suggestions to Buhari as part of the lawmakers' efforts to solve the industrial dispute between the unhappy university professors and the Federal Government.

After the meeting, when speaking to the State House media, the Speaker stated that MPs are optimistic because the President listened attentively and acknowledged the report's details.

Gbajabiamila revealed that another meeting with the President has been set for Thursday, October 6th.

He also said that the leaders of the House had come to the Villa after meeting with ASUU several times and that they were waiting for the President's final decision.

"After a series of interactions with ASUU, the leadership presented the President with suggestions for approval. They came to discuss the proposals with the President, "Gbajabiamila added."

"The president had a fine ear for listening; he accepted the report's specifics. We will meet again on Thursday to make a final decision after he has had time to think about the information.

"We have concluded our meeting with the ASUU. We are optimistic since we had a productive meeting, he approved the report, and we clarified a few ambiguous points. "


ASUU has been on strike since February 14

In August, the union said that its strike would continue "completely and indefinitely" because the government had not met its demands properly.

The academics' desire, among other things, increased welfare, the revitalization of public universities, and academic autonomy. Academics disagree about the about N1.1 trillion in unpaid university revitalization funds.

However, the Federal Government has stated that it lacks the funds to pay such a sum, blaming low oil prices during the government of Muhammadu Buhari.
