Nigerian students laments strike action will slow down their academic calendar


Following the declaration of indefinite strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), students are calling on the Federal Government to meet the union’s demands.

According to the students, the strike action will slow down their academic calendar, thereby demoralising them.

They are appealing to FG to intervene in the issues in order for them to graduate as at when due.

Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the University of Ilorin chapter have refused to join the industrial action called by the national body.

A visit to the university shows some students who are on campus getting set for registration with the surroundings empty of activities.

The branch chairman of ASUU, Uthman Abdulraheem, says the institution did not join the strike as they were not officially communicated to by the union which has been happening for years.
