Public University strike approaches 5 months

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.

How long shall the country remain in this state, how long shall we continue like this. The politicians send there children abroad to study and denied the children of the poor and vulnerable masses quality education. Imaging for five solid months the students are still at home. They are only giving room for the country to breed criminals,they only making to the youth to find means to get out of the country.

This clearly shows that the government does not care about the welfare of the citizens. Hopefully, we get to elect better people in this coming election. The set of people that will put first the interest of the citizens before theirs.so we can have a better Nigeria

A lot of students have decided to travel out of the country because of the incompetence of the government and asuu on education in the country

If the government is wise, they’ll know that this IPPSIS model will benefit them more because it will eliminate a lot of ghost workers in the country.

This ideas from ASUU is brilliant because the IPPSIS system would make payments of salaries easier and faster.

Because university students make up such a vast proportion of the population in Nigeria, the strike has had a significant and negative effect on the country’s economy, and something needs to be done ASAP

The government should settle this thing fast because these students would have nothing to do and can as a result venture into cyber crime and other criminal offenses

The ASUU strike matter has gotten out of hand and if care is not taken, the strike might extend to a year with the current way the federal government is ignoring their demand. The future our government promised the youth is getting blurry.

It will be better if as finds another way than making their interest known with the strike.

However, the government should do the needful on time, the country’s future is at stake with is.

Government should give in to ASUU’s demands.The strike is making Nigerian students give up on education. As we know, “An idle hand is devil’s workshop”. it is very possible the rate of criminal activities in the county to increase.

ASUU is not relenting on this strike and the strike is elongating more and more. Since 5 months ago now, this brouhaha hasn’t been solved. I don’t know why it so difficult for the Federal government to listen to the demands of ASUU and call off this strike.

It’s sad how ineffective strike has become. The purpose is to have a bargain with the government. Buh these guys really don’t care. We under ASUU’s plight, buh they should come up with another strategy or do something. This clearly isn’t getting the attention of the government. It’s no news that these government don’t seem to care. Strike has gone as far as a year before.

Wow it’s already 5 months already? Damn this is bad the federal government should resonate with asuu and come to a suitable agreement for both ends.

This is actually awful from the government and ASUU because they are putting the lives and futures of the students on hold. Courses that is meant to last for 4 years will now be taking 6 to 7 years. That’s bad

ASUU has a plan of what they want, which is suitable from their end because this IPPIS system will enable the government to have a database of all the ASUU staff and pay them automatically; this will enable them to receive steady pay and reduce the margins for error.

ASUU’s request is not out of the line but it does not require them to put the lives of thousands of students in jeopardy. The government should try their possible best to meet the needs of ASUU Because not meeting their needs has more disadvantages than advantages. When students become idle there will be tendency for the rate of criminal activities to increase.

The federal government should succumb to ASUU’s demands and provide them whatever they asked for because this prolonged strike is not helpful.

Government and ASUU should find a solution to all this student are suffering, let them finish on time and face the real activities they are just extending their year to use in school. Strike as make some people give up on education while some on strike since they are free that are using the opportunity to engage in bad stuff end strike

This is the appropriate time for the presidential candidates to campaign against this kind of government we currently have. A government willing to abandoned the students for selfish gains. Everyday goes by without a single apology towards ASUU and the students for interrupting their future. Please pay the salaries and the schools will reopen ASAP.

The federal government is just playing hide and seek with ASUU. Stopping the educational activities in the country and wasting the time of students is outrageous when they can just find a better way to dialogue with ASUU.
