President Buhari has asked lecturers in public universities to suspend their almost six-month-old strike.
According to him, enough is enough for keeping students at home, urging the striking lecturers to consider the generational consequences of their actions.
Buhari says the ongoing negotiations of their demands will continue, while students are in lecture halls.
The president reads the riot act to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) while receiving APC legislators and political leaders, who paid him a Sallah homage at his private residence in Daura, Katsina state.
He says that his administration understands their positions on their demands.
the president, however, asks ASUU to sympathize with Nigerians on the prolonged strike, which has taken a toll on the psychology of parents, students, and other stakeholders.
Buhari also pleads with all well-meaning Nigerians, particularly those close to the university-based unions to intervene and convince them to reconsider their position.
Meanwhile, President Buhari says he is eager to leave office, complaining that the job of the presidency is tough.
Buhari in a statement by his media aide, Garba Sheu, says the work schedule of a president is much while wishing Nigeria’s next president the very best.
The president, however, says he is grateful to God that Nigerians appreciate the sacrifice being made.
Buhari says he had been away from his home in Daura for the past year, hoping that in the next 11 months he will return home.
