Nigeria: President warns ministers to end teachers’ strike

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari issued a warning to the country’s education and labor ministers to end the protracted teachers’ strike.

The president has given the ministers two weeks to find out a solution to teacher’s strike.

The country’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) asked its members to skip work on 14 February and have not returned since then.

They are protesting against the government’s failure to implement a 2009 deal that would see lecturers get better pay and improve facilities in institutions of higher learning.

Union officials and the government have been holding talks to find solutions to end the industrial action, but they have not been successful, media reported.
