The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU through its president has begged varsity students to cooperate with them in the ongoing strike.
The union also vowed to sustain its ongoing strike action until the Federal Government addresses all its demands.
In a series of tweets on the union’s official page, they wrote;
“Students who are our children and partners in progress should show understanding, what we are asking from the government are in their interest and the interest of the nation, good hostel accommodation, good classroom blocks that can engender effective learning,…….
“laboratories where cutting edge research can be carried out and offices that can drive the process of quality university education.
“So what we are asking of the government are not baseless things, but those things that in 2012, the government conducted during a needs assessment survey and found out that there is widespread rot and decay in the university system.”
PunchNg also reports that the union’s President Biodun Ogunyemi at the University of Port Harcourt on Saturday during its interactive session with critical stakeholders vows to keep the strike in motion if a new scale of salary isn’t introduced.
He said, “A new salary scale should be in place and we are insisting that the process is completed before this ongoing strike is suspended among other things.”
