Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo said the Federal Government (FG) will not allow the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU to push it to plunge into another burden of borrowings.
Keyamo made this assertion while speaking during an interview with Politics Today on Channels Television on Friday.
He said the FG has explored all avenues to reach a truce, but the striking ASUU members turned deaf ears.
Keyamo stated that ASUU failed to honour dialogue with the key stakeholders holding the purse of the federal government.
The minister said the government could not exceed its capacity, because it is not only ASUU that is feeding from the FG purse.
When asked further what was his message to ASUU, parents and Nigerian public, Keyamo said he appealed to ASUU members to go back to the class and urged the parents to join in the appeal.
