The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila,

On Friday, said President Muhammadu Buhari would address the public over the long-term strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Gbajabiamila disclosed this after a follow-up meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The delegation from the House of Representatives met with Buhari on Tuesday with a report from earlier meetings with ASUU and government officials. 

The president told the team then that he would review the report and make a judgment after doing so.

But on Friday Gbajabiamila told the State House Correspondents that they would hear the meeting’s outcome with the President on Friday directly from him, despite the fact that, in Gbajabiamila’s opinion, the exchange was positive and productive.

“We just came here for a follow up, which was supposed to be yesterday, but unfortunately, the President was not around and this is a follow up.

” We had, once again, very fruitful, good discussions with Mr. President on the pending issue and this matter will be concluded. 

“You will hear directly from the President, but suffice to say that we had a very good meeting and it will be concluded”, Gbajabiamila said.

The Speaker added that he was optimistic and fully assured that there would be positive results from the meeting they had with the President.

He said: “the assurance is that we’ve met with the president, we’ve discussed, it was a positive meeting. 

“I think Nigerians will hear directly from Mr. President. We all look forward to it, but we had a good meeting. You can read between the lines”.
