Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has once again spoken up about the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

In a statement on Thursday, he continued his push for the Federal Government to take action to meet the demands of the striking lecturers and end the industrial action which started on February 14.

This is came less than 72 hours after he called on the Federal Government to submit a supplementary budget to appropriate N200 billion to revamp federal universities across the country.

Falana called on the government to sign the renegotiated agreement with the union.
