Ngige  said the President has directed him  to pass the night here until all issues that have kept students away from school are resolved and strike called off.

He also said that  the president directed him to seek the understanding of  all sides, with  a view that the revenue of the federation has dwindled from what it was before the present administration assumed office.

The Minister further said President Buhari was greatly worried about the situation in the university system, hence, his steady and holistic approach to tackling the rot through adequate funding, notwithstanding the dwindling revenue accruals.

“The President told me to assure you of his determination to reposition our universities as he would do everything possible to cast the present challenges in our tertiary education to the dustbin of history,” Ngige added.
