Lawan made the call during a meeting between the leadership of ASUU and the principal officers of the Senate in Abuja.

He urged the Federal Government and the union to find a common ground for universities to open and offer the kind of services expected of the universities in the country.

The senate president said: “We really don’t need this kind of situation where our universities are shut. Our children are the main victims of this crisis.

“We cannot afford as a country to continue to have this kind of crisis.

“This may explain why those that can afford will normally go out of the country even to West African countries like Ghana to receive university education.

“I believe our universities can be better but they are better than most of these universities that our children go to in other African countries particularly.

“The idea is to find out how we can resolve the outstanding issues and it is supposed to be give and take.

“Government cannot have all its way and I believe ASUU should not expect to get everything it has demanded.

“Our situation today is something that everyone knows what it is.

“It is a very stressful economic situation and I believe that the government is supposed to even within this type of situation play its own part.

“Its obligations must be redeemed within the confines of what we can do.

“But ASUU, I know is prepared to meet government halfway somehow because I am sure we have joint determination to resolve these issues.

“The National Assembly is the best place to go because while on one hand we are a government, on another hand we represent the people, we represent you.

“We represent the families and the children who are now at home because the universities are shut.

“ I think as parliamentarians we have to tell the truth as it is no matter how bitter it may be at the right place and at the right time. When we sign agreements we must do so with the full intention of implementing them.

“And when we negotiate, we must negotiate in such a manner that the final product will be implementable.

“This is to say that we have to accommodate each other with government doing what it is supposed to do and ASUU being the body of our lecturers, it stands to protect its members. But everybody else in the country must ensure that our universities remain open and functioning.”
