The Academic Staff Union of Universities has expressed its sympathy for Nigerians students affected by its strike action.
The President of ASUU was quoted saying “ASUU sympathises with university students, and we believe that with what is going on, if we continue with the struggle, we will have an education system where Nigerian students will have the same lecture rooms with their foreign counterparts.”
Recall there were hopes that the strike will be called off after the FG paid some staff two months arrears salary.
But ASUU President, Prof. Osedeke said it will be a waste of time to call off the strike if the Union’s demands are not met. “There’s no need to call off the strike when the federal government had not attended to our demands” Osodeke said.
