The Kaduna State chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has called on the federal government to resume negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over its prolonged strike.

Abdullahi Danfulani, state chairman of TUC Kaduna, made the call at a press conference as part of the activities marking the 2022 Workers Day celebration on Sunday in Kaduna.

Mr Danfulani said that constant strikes by the union due to the two parties’ refusal to reach an agreement had disrupted the academic calendar.

He noted that the country could not compete in the present millennium with an academic curriculum drafted over three decades ago.

He said as part of the celebration, the union had called on the leaders to do the needful in rebuilding the nation’s economy and education with the available and adequate human and material resources in the country.

While commending the government for its intervention in security, it urged for a more robust fight against insurgents in the country.

He said there was a need for a more transparent process in tackling the challenges adding that by standing together in sincerity and unity, greater success would be achieved.

The union also called on all its members and Nigerians to vote wisely as 2023 general polls approached and elect credible leaders.
