The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to come up with policies that would stimulate economic growth for the benefit of poor people during his next four-year tenure.
The National President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi made the call in an interview the Newsmen in Lagos.
Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat his closest rival, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party in the presidential poll conducted on Feb. 23. Atiku polled 11,262,978 to lose the election with a margin of 3,928,869 votes.
The ASUU president urged President Buhari to get down to work and ensure that his administration comes up with pro people policies that will be majorly tailored around key sectors such education, health, transportation and employment.
The unionist also urged the president to put issues concerning the recent Memorandum of Action (MoA) it signed with his union in the front burner.
Ogunyemi said the federal government signed a MoA with ASUU and that the union will insist on it. That, he said is not negotiable.
