ASUU STRIKE: UPDATE FROM AAU, EKPOMA

As we all know school the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) are still on its’ nationwide strike action.

Yesterday here in AAU, the strike action affected resumption, when our news crew visited campus, we notice all classes were empty as there was no evidence of resumption in the classroom , although offices were opened for operation by the non academic staff in the University. Students were seen around going about their hostel clearance, final year clearance and lots more.

During our route report, we saw the bus of the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) AAU CHAPTER going around campus to find out if it’s members are compliying with the directive of the indefinite and total comprehensive strike, attempt to speak with the Charman of the union or any member of the union proof abortive as it seems they were all busy on official duties.

We had a cross session interviews with some students seen on campus to find out how they feel about the nationwide strike by ASUU, the first student which identity himself as Kelvin, said that the nationwide strike has been a continuous routine that is done every year, he said that the strike is not a good option at all for asking from the Federal Government because if the Government don’t answer the students will continue to stiffer.

Another student who identified herself Mercy said its a a sacrifice all students should bear that once federal government answer the union members that the students will enjoy it at last. “All we need is to be patient and pray to God to change the mind of the Federal Government.” She concluded.

Other students interviewed by our news crew, while some said they support the strike others were against it.

Meanwhile, the Faculty of Law will be resuming classes tomorrow as promised by the Dean of the faculty that he won’t be part of the nationwide strike action.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the federal government is yet to begin any dialogu with the union over the ongoing strike.

The union embarked on strike one week ago over the poor funding of Nigerian universities and an alleged plan by the federal government to increase student’s fees and introduce an education bank. The union also accuses the federal government of not implementing a 2017 agreement.
