Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said the clash of interests between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government is unending.
He noted that his administration had issues with the union despite his efforts to satisfy lecturers in the country.
Obasanjo spoke as a panelist at the National Summit on Tertiary Education Reform organized by the Office of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, a two-day event that commenced in Abuja on Tuesday.
The ex-president also said Nigeria must educate the 20 million children that were out of school to avert creating another set of Boko Haram terrorists.
The Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, in his welcome address, described education as the silver bullet that could eliminate poverty and lack.
