The Speaker of the House of Representatives will discuss the continuing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike with President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.) on Tuesday.

The lawmakers are set to convey to Buhari their recommendations from talks they had with stakeholders on the strike, according to a high Presidency source who did not want his name in print because he was not authorized to speak to press on the subject.

Punch reports that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, has reportedly stated that the House would write a report on its involvement in the continuing strike and meet with the President to discuss it.

Speaking at the last meeting of the House Leadership with stakeholders comprising members of ASUU and representatives of the Federal Government, the lawmaker said the report will reflect their interactions on the FG-ASUU face-off and provide recommendations to enable the President to assess the situation from an informed second option.

Gbajabiamila, however, did not disclose when his team will meet the President.

“We will put together our recommendations and our thoughts and take it to Mr President, that is why we are here to interface and look for solutions,” he had said.

However, the Presidency source, in an interview with one of the Punch correspondents, said, “The leaders of the House of Representatives are scheduled to see the President in the coming week. They are on the programme. The President will receive them at 3pm on Tuesday.
