ASUU strike : Parents, students call for quick FG intervention


Some parents and students in Abuja, on Tuesday, urged the Federal Government to speedily intervene and resolve the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU).

The parents, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja, expressed worry over the constant strikes embarked upon by the university lecturers’ union.

On Monday, the Federal Government and ASUU had a meeting to resolve their agreement in order to suspend the lecturers’ strike. However, the meeting that reportedly started at about 5 p.m. at the Federal Ministry of Education ended in another deadlock.

A parent, Mrs Eunice John, said: “it is a pity what our government and ASUU is; doing to this to our children who have been; forced once again out of school. ‎

We know that many of the leaders have their children either studying in private universities or in other schools overseas, that is why they can always keep our children out of school.

Many parents are; struggling to pay school fees of their wards to keep them in school and out of the streets; yet these children are; forced to come home and some now engage in various vices.


That is not the only problem, when their studies are; disrupted, it affects them; imagine those who were in the middle of writing examinations having that flow disrupted. ‎

John pleaded with the FG and ASUU to reach an agreement that would end the strike and ultimately help improve the education sector.

Mr David Onilede, another parent said the strike was worrisome adding that it would affect the productivity of the students.

I am worried at the sustained strike by ASUU. As a parent, the capacity of our children for productive interaction with their studies is being jeopardised. “I do not trust the FG ‘ s negotiating team; it seems that it is; fixated on commercialising education at the tertiary level; ASUU should resist this. ‎

ASUU too, should be more flexible in their obsession with earned allowances; it portrays their struggles as selfish,’’ he said. Mrs Jumoke Yusuf, a Public Servant, told NAN that the constant and protracted lecturers’ strikes had marred the country’s university system, as continuous breaks in the learning process had negatively affected the students.

This strike is affecting the students and even we the parents because unexpectedly these children are coming home which they did not plan for. “That is not the main issue because you cannot stop your children from coming home no matter what.

The issue is that these incessant strikes are actually causing a lot of problems for these children in the sense that they just stay too long in school. ‎

Esther Ajayi, a student ‎at the Nasarawa State University, who a spoke to NAN, said the strike had reduced her morale. ‎”I paid my fees for admission for a master’s degree programme and was excited and ready to go to school, however, this strike has dampened my hope of finishing within the stipulated time. “We want the federal government to dialogue with ASUU to end this continuous strike. ‎

It is not only sad that children of the masses try to be beat all odds to be; the best they can be, but more worrisome is; that the government of the day plays politics with the education system. ‎

Nigeria prides herself as the giant of Africa, but finds it difficult to resolve issues that are beneficial to the populace, we want the strike called off soonest.” ‎ Emmanuel Onuoha, another student who spoke to NAN, accused the FG of failing the Nigerian student. ‎

He said that government needed to do everything within its power to address the challenges; in the sector as he called for the strike to be; called of soonest. “Our parents said in their time the education system was good, there was; nothing like strike and education was basically free.

Now some of them are in government and they are; allowing us to suffer what they never did, because they can afford to send their children to schools abroad to get the best. ‎

We are pleading with government to solve this problem so we can go back to school. “Our ‎mates in private universities are way ahead of us; we‎ are just sitting at home doing nothing. It is not fair,”‎ he said. ‎ NAN reports that on Nov 4, ASUU began; an indefinite strike.

Specifically, ASUU demanded for improved funding of public universities based on agreements reached with the Federal Government in 2009.

Some of the demands by the union are that the Federal Government should nominate another chairman of the government renegotiating team of the 2009 ASUU/Federal Government Agreement to replace Dr Wale Babalakin.

Other issues bothering the union are; non-payment of Earned allowance, funding of revitalization of the Nigerian universities; implementation of needs assessment report, poor funding of state universities, among others.

    Thanks for excellent information I was looking for this information for my

  3. I think everything posted was very logical.
    But, think about this, suppose you were to write a awesome headline?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however what
    if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean ASUU strike :
    Parents, students call for quick FG intervention – Campuzhit – Nigerian latest news blog,Trending news is a
    little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how
    they create post titles to grab people interested.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.

  4. I was curious if you ever considered changing
    the page layout of your site? Its very well
    written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
