Hey there, middle schoolers! Guess what? President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has some exciting news for all of us. He has made a promise that strikes by university lecturers will be a thing of the past under his administration. Isn’t that awesome?
Tinubu is determined to take all the necessary actions to make sure that universities never go on strike again. He wants to bring peace and progress to our education system.
Recently, the President announced that the controversial deduction of 40% of Internally Generated Revenues (IGRs) from government-owned universities has been canceled. This is a big step towards creating a better environment for learning.
Tinubu believes that dialogue is the best way to solve problems. He wants to have conversations with all the unions in our universities to work together and bring positive changes.
He said, “On our part, we will ensure that motivational activities are put in place to ensure improved productivity. Reciprocative actions would be expected from our universities as the government works hard to raise the bar of a conducive teaching and learning environment.”
Tinubu wants us to understand that strikes only cause problems. They disrupt our lives, waste time, and make our academic calendar longer. Instead of going on strike, he wants us to use dialogue, patience, and positive engagements to achieve the results we want.
He said, “To whom much is given, much is expected. Dialogue, patience, and positive engagements are better means of achieving results than strike actions. Industrial disharmony does nothing but disrupt life, waste time, and elongate the academic calendar.”
So, my fellow middle schoolers, let’s be hopeful for a brighter future in our universities. With President Tinubu’s commitment to tackling all the challenges in the education sector, we can expect great things to come.
Remember, dialogue is the key to success, and together, we can create a peaceful and productive learning environment. Goodbye strikes, hello progress!
