A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Young Progressives Party, Mrs Ruby Isaac, has pledged to work toward ending the perennial Academic Staff Union of Universities’ strike in the country.
Isaac said this on Tuesday at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja when she spoke with newsmen.
She also promised to salvage dysfunctional public institutions in the country, saying that quality and functional education was a catalyst for national development.
“It is shameful to see education stakeholders who have not performed well now vying for elective positions while the system suffers and youths suffer longevity in studying short-term courses as a result of their insensitivity and selfishness.
“Nigerian leaders deliberately ignored proffering solutions to the nations problem because of greed, selfishness and self-service.
“But if I am given the opportunity to serve in the capacity of the president, I will ensure that identified problems that hinder national progress such as ASUU strikes would be given permanent solutions.
“I will also ensure that children of elected public officers are made to school within the country and not outside the country,” she partly said.a
