SERAP stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s failure to end the lingering ASUU strike was a violation of the legal obligation of the government to provide access to Higher education.

The civil society organization, in a series of tweets on its verified Twitter handle on Friday wrote: “We’re suing the Buhari administration over its failure to end the strike action by ASUU, which is a violation of the legal obligation to provide access to higher education without discrimination.”
