The senate on Tuesday mandated the speaker, Bukola Saraki to intervene in the impending face-off between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government.
It will be recalled that ASUU on Monday, announced that it would embark on a one-week warning strike starting Wednesday, over failure by the Federal Government to implement the 2009 Agreement and 2013 MoU.
Senator Jibrin Barau who raised a point of order at the National Assembly on the impending strike action, which ASUU has warned to embark on, led a motion on the urgent matter of national importance regarding the impending ASUU Strike.
According to him, the smooth operations of Nigerian Universities and Staff Welfare is very important.
Senator Danjuma Goje who also supported the motion, charged the Senate to rise to the occasion and avoid the impending industrial strike action of ASUU.
