WE WANT SCHOOL: Varsity Students Urges ASUU To End Strike!!

RISING from their meeting with the Senate Committee on Education at theNational Assembly Monday, the National Association of Nigerian UniversityStudents (NANUS) called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end its strike and embrace dialogue with the Federal Government.

The students’ body, led by its National President, Peter Bassey Asuquo, also informed the committee that ASUU did not consult with the students before embarking on the prolonged strike.

NANUS told the Senator Uche Chukwumerije-led committee that ASUU’s incessant strikes had failed to impact on the infrastructure status of government universities nationwide, accusing the lecturers of pursuing selfish ends to the detriment of students.

It further urged the committee to probe government-owned universities on their internally Generated Revenue (IGR), which it alleged has been largely misapplied, leaving university with dilapidated infrastructure and learning aids.
In his comment, Chukwumerije queried the paucity of IGR by universities and ASUU’s incessant strikes. He called for alternative dispute resolution methods between tertiary unions and the Federal Government.
