“We Want To Resume” – ASUU Request Cooperation Of Nigerian Students
Nigerian students have bemoaned the ASUU Chairman’s request for their understanding and cooperation, after the union revealed its intention to continue its ongoing strike action.
The union, tweeted via its official twitter account, that the ongoing strike will continue until the Federal Government meet all its demands.
They asked for the support and understanding of the Nigerian students, as according to them, what they are fighting for is in their best interest.
The tweet reads,
“ASUU Chairman Asks Nigerian Students For Their Corporation.
“Students who are our children and partners in progress should show understanding, what we are asking from the government are in their interest and the interest of the nation.
“Good hostel accommodation, good classroom blocks that can engender effective learning, laboratories where cutting edge research can be carried out and offices that can drive the process of quality university education.
“So what we are asking of the government are not baseless things, but those things that in 2012, the government conducted during a needs assessment survey and found out that there is widespread rot and decay in the university system.”
However, Nigerian students are not buying into the idea, as they’ve taken to their twitter account to express their grievance and bemoan the request.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has formally written to the Federal Government requesting for negotiations which were abandoned in February to be reopened.
The two bodies stopped negotiating after the disagreement over the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).
The union also appealed to the Government to commence a process that would lead to the validation of its alternative salary payment platform, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
It demanded that the FG should remove all academic staff already captured on IPPIS and enrol them on UTAS.
