The Federal Ministry of Education, on Wednesday, urged Nigerian students to compel the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off its “unwarranted” strike.
Meanwhile, the union had informed students and parents via a Facebook post, that it was not considering calling off the strike declared since March 23.
It claimed that the federal government was unserious and unwilling to fulfil its core demands for the betterment of university education.
“We wish to let Nigerians especially our students and parents know that there is no hope in sight to ending or suspending the ASUU strike that has lingered for several months as Government is yet to show serious commitment towards addressing our core demands. Our members have been advised to seek other legitimate means of survival as the Government has not released salaries withheld since February, 2020,” it stated on Tuesday.
Among ASUU’s demands are the proposed 110-billion-naira revitalization fund and the approval of its own payment model (University Transparency and Accountability Solution).
