BREAKING: Buhari Speaks On Nigerian Universities Going On Another Strike-The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the number one citizen of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has told the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to always embrace dialogue instead of going on strikes.

Let me also use this opportunity to appeal to members of the academic staff of our universities to embrace peace.“They should realise that dialogue is always better than conflict.

I enjoin our researchers to collaborate among themselves and look forward to bringing an effective solution to this medical challenge.“The nation expects University of Ilorin to play a leading role in the research efforts to develop Covid 19 in Nigeria.“The nation expects nothing less from the Nigerian University system.”
