The House of Representatives has brought a new dimension to the protracted strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal gave the union a blank cheque when he indicated that the National Assembly was disposed to approving extra- budgetary expenses for the Federal Government if that would break the stalemate in the trade dispute.
But there is nothing much to cheer about in this offer because it is highly hypothetical.
It is however encouraging that there are still people in government who still want to give ASUU another opportunity to exit this dark stage.
Tambuwal may mean well in his mediation but should know that the matter has gone beyond printing more money and throwing them at problems. Let reason prevail above any other thing in breaking this deadlock.
