In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Mr. Kalu also urged ASUU members to make it easy to negotiate with the Nigerian government so that students could resume their academic pursuits.

 

 

 

Many students from his district have been absent from school as a result of the ongoing ASUU strike, according to the former governor of Abia State who now represents Abia North District in the Nigerian Senate.

He said that, as a legislator, he lacked the authority to end the ASUU strike.
