The House of Representatives Tuesday summoned the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufai and officials of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in other to avert the impending strike by the union.

In a motion brought to the floor of the House by Rep Bashir Babale, PDP, Kano, said that it is becoming worrisome that university lecturers would have to be embarking on strikes to force government meet its obligations on issues that have been agreed upon in the best interest of the nation’s tertiary education.

In the interest of the nation’s education sector Babale urged the House to quickly intervene with a view to avert the impending strike which ultimatumexpires in nine days.
Hon Osai Osai (PDP, Delta) who seconded the motion said without proper education the nation’s democracy cannot survive and that if university education collapses, it will affect other sectors in the nation.

He also said that it is wrong for the government to allow a reminiscent of the 2009 strike which was called off after the government reached an agreement with ASUU and that the impending strike is the failure of the 2009 agreement.
The resolution was unanimously accepted when Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal put it to vote.
