Students all over the country have been thrown into delusion about their future, as the continued between the FG and ASUU still remains a hard nut to crack.
The Academi Staff Union of University (ASUU) had in February declared a warning strike in all public universities, against the failure of the FG to accede to their 2009 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the revitalization of funds and earned allowances of the lecturers, with the Union asking for a whooping sum of over N200 Billion.
While the strike continues to linger between the Union staff and the FG, the most affected victim remains the students whose stay continues to extend on the campus despite the economic degradation of the present government.
With consecutive academic disturbances by the strike, Students whose fate was put on the bar had come out in large masses to protest against the occurring strike in the academic sectors, with student leaders trying to act as mediators between both parties in order to find a quick and lasting solution to the academic menace disturbing the society.
On the 79th day of the strike, any attempt of calling off the strike is still far from the table, with a back-to-back failed negotiation between ASUU and FG over the IPPIS and UTAS payment vendetta.
While ASUU had debunked the Hon Minister of Telecommunications result of a failed credibility and accountability test on UTAS, the Union remains strong in its rejection of IPPIS even to the detriment of initiating a “No Work No Pay” policy in order to compel them at the classroom.
With most students attending Federal University being the most affected, Students all over the country has resolved to find a better solution with the use of protest both online and physically in order to draw the attention of concerned authorities to come to their rescue.
With Students which mostly at home, it became apparent that the continued strike has imbibed most of the spirit of non-patriotism in Nigeria.
