This followed a motion of by Dachung Bagos (PDP, Plateau) who noted that the strike action would cause a lot of academic problems to the University students as well as embarrassment to the nation, “It’s a wrong signal to the world”. He lamented that the situation of public Universities in Nigeria is worrisome considering that many of them don’t have required facilities to teach.
