ASUU Strike


Education System in Nigeria is what all Nigerian youths wish they were never a part of. We always wish we could afford the price of travelling abroad or attending a private university so as to “finish quickly” our education and then begin to enjoy life. However, with things not going the way we wish, we get stuck with the dragging system and pray for things to get better.

For a while now, ASUU has shut down academic activities in most federal universities. Academic officials refuse to take up their duty post pending the time government will answer and meet up their demands, while the students are caught up in the middle bearing the brunt of both parties.

Nevertheless, the federal government has made a publication about their negotiation with ASUU slated for tomorrow, in order to pull the Nigerian students out of their misery; this was announced by the Minister for Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, yesterday at Abuja.

The demands of ASUU are: The release of worker’s allowances, which has accumulated over time, the need to replace the negotiation Chairman and the proper funding of the universities to a better standard.

The meeting will hold tomorrow, 7th of January, which will decide the fate of the Nigerian students and the nation at large.

Good luck to the students, we hope to hear good news soon.
