ASUU Strike: How Nigerian Government Got It Wrong – Obasanjo


​Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday spoke on the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

He blamed the then government of late president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua for agreeing to certain demands made by ASUU.

Speaking at a book launch in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, Obasanjo noted that the administration should not have allowed itself to be stampeded into signing agreements without full consultations.

“Government allows itself to be stampeded into signing agreement particularly when one group or the other withdraws their service and go on strike.

“After the agreement has been signed, without full consultation within government, and implementation becomes an issue.

“But an agreement is an agreement whoever the agent is that signed that agreement on your behalf, you are bound by it.

“You may now have to renegotiate to have a new agreement but the agreement earlier signed remains an agreement.

“The universities teachers go on strike, there is an agreement; doctors go on strike, there will be a special agreement.

“And when the universities teachers see that the agreement reached with the doctors is different from theirs, they again go on strike and this is bad for our economy,” he added.
