ASUU Strike: FG To Continue Negotiation Today

The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities will today continue his negotiations with the federal government to resolve the industrial strike crisis.
The ASUU National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, made an appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos Today (Thursday) on parents and students to show understanding in repositioning and saving the country’s university system from total collapse.

According to Ogunyemi, the strike is not to short-change neither the students nor the parents and other key stakeholders but to save the country’s university system from collapse.

“We want to call on our students and parents to show understanding with our struggle as we are in this together.

“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."

“Today, most parents are sending their children and wards to private primary and secondary schools around the country because of the perceived or alleged falling standards.

“We do not want our universities to go same way because a lot of our parents may not be able to afford the private university fees,’’ he said.

He noted that university students might be staying longer at home as no concrete resolution had been reached with the Federal Government so far.

“We met on Monday in order to reach an agreement on the key issues we are agitating for but nothing tangible came out of the meeting.

“We were told that the negotiation will continue on Friday, November 30 but up till now, as we speak, I have not received any notice of meeting to that effect," he said.
