Parents should go and beg ASUU, Keyamo says, declines to kneel on air

Minister of state for labour and employment Festus Keyamo has said that the Federal Government has done its best to address the lingering ASUU strike, urging parents to beg the union.

The strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has seen schools shut since February 14.

The government is yet to reach an agreement with the union since then.

Keyamo said on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Friday that parents and other stakeholders should appeal to ASUU to end the strike.

“Even before the strike began we called them to a meeting. It’s not like we left them to go on strike and we were sleeping and three months later we said ‘Can we start talking?’”
