8 He said the youth had been kept at home for the past six months despite the intervention of the House and several well-meaning Nigerians overtime to see that the matter was resolved.

9 “In the light of the foregoing,  the House hereby request for another opportunity to come together with stakeholders and leadership of ASUU  to seek a amicable resolution.
