The minister disclosed the position of government to State House Correspondents when he featured on the weekly press briefing organised by the Presidential Communication Team, at the Presidential Villa.

According to him, the insistence of lecturers that they be paid for the period they are on strike was one of the reasons why the issues around the strike has net been resolved.

“All contentious issues between the government and ASUU had been settled except the quest for members’ salaries for the period of strike be paid, a demand that Buhari has flatly rejected.” he stated.

The minister said the President’s position had been communicated to the lecturers who are being awaited to call off the strike.
