Varsity students want FG, ASUU to end rift

By  Chidi Nkwopara

OWERRI—Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Federal Government have been called upon to urgently resolve their differences in the interest of the country’s university education.

All the students of Nigerian universities, who spoke to Vanguard on the on-going strike action by ASUU, lamented that they have been sent  home on forced vacation because of the industrial action.

A final year student of Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Kelechi, was angry that the Federal Government opted to toy with the education of the students, instead of attending to the demands of ASUU.

“What was the point in procrastinating over the ASUU demands until they went on strike? Will the Federal Government honestly say that it did not see the strike coming? ASUU went on  a warning strike and government did nothing about their demands”, Kelechi said.

He was irked that “the system in Nigeria is such that nobody is sure of when to gain admission and those who are enrolled do not know when they will graduate”.
