2 Ayo made the appeal while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Ota, Ogun.
He noted that this had become necessary because tertiary education was the bedrock of social-economic, political, technological and economic transformation of any country.
4 He noted that the nation was losing a lot of money with many students going abroad to study, as a result of poor quality and access to education in the country.
5 He said an improved education system was the panacea to insecurity and the economic situation of the country.
6 “What should be paramount to the federal government should be how to improve access and quality of our education system.
10 This, he said, would improve the state of education, adding that the quality of the nation’s education system was going down.
11 Ayo said asking ASUU to end the strike was postponing the evil days, not an attempt to solve the problems for which ASUU called the strike.
12 Ayo emphasised that the totality of the conditions of ASUU needed to be met by the federal government before asking them to end their strike.
14 NAN also reports that ASUU had embarked on strike on Feb. 14, after the federal government failed to meet its demands.
