The minister of education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on Monday, angrily walked out of a meeting with University students, who were protesting over the incessant strikes by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The minister had scheduled an impromptu meeting with the leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) who barricaded the entrance of the federal ministry of education at the Central Area in Abuja on Monday.
The students asked the minister to close down his office since he could not resolve the crisis between the Federal Government and ASUU, while also lamenting the failure of government to resolve ASUU strike after several years.
NANS national president, Comrade Sunday Asefon, said: “ASUU strike is killing education more and more. This strike has been affecting our lives since 1999 and Nigerian students want to be part of the discussion between federal government and ASUU to find a lasting solution to the matter.
