Asuu strike 2018:Ben Bruce Speaks on What FG can end ASUU strike permanently
Ben Murray-Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East, has suggested how the federal government can end the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.
Bruce said that privatization of federal and state universities will put a stop to continuous ASUU strikes.
The Bayelsa lawmaker made this known in a post on his Twitter page.
The tweet read: “I suggest the federal and state governments should privatize the universities that they own.
“ This will bring in genuine investors and bring an end to the continuous ASUU strikes.”

They are also demanding an improved welfare package and better funding of the university system among other issues.
