‘It may be a Long Strike’ – ASUU Warns
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says students may spend more time at home since no solid agreement has been reached in its negotiation with the federal government.
Abiodun Ogunyemi, national president of ASUU, said this on Thursday while speaking with reporters in Lagos.
Ogunyemi appealed to parents and students to show understanding, saying the industrial action is meant to avert total collapse of the country’s university system.
“We want to call on our students and parents to show understanding with our struggle as we are in this together,” he said.
“The whole essence of this struggle is to ensure that our students get worthy and deserving certificates that they will be proud of anywhere they may find themselves in the world.
“The struggle is to ensure too that we save Nigerian universities from going the way our public primary and secondary schools have gone.
