Youth and young adults put their future on hold as Adamu Adamu remains unseen.

TVC News Nigeria gives us a report on the ongoing public university strike.

It has been nearly 5 months since Nigeria’s public universities closed due to a strike. The strike was called by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in response to the Nigerian government’s failure to meet its promises on the use of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). ASUU is demanding that the government adhere to the 2009 agreement, it has also demanded that withheld salaries get paid out and called for an increase in state funding. The strike has had a significant impact on the Nigerian economy, as university students make up a large percentage of the population. The government has so far refused to meet ASUU’s demands, and the strike continues.
