ASUU Still Refuses To Call Off Strike

This ASUU matter is very personal to me and I am so pained because my daughter is in her first year in the University of Lagos and has done NOTHING in 9 months because of this strike!

Can you just imagine? Her mates in private universities are already in their second year but they are even yet to finish the first semester of their first year because of ASUU.

I finished university 20 years ago and ASUU strike was also an issue then, why can't there be an upgraded and improved way of dealing with issues between university bodies and the government? 

There had been indications that the union would call off its strike after a meeting with the Federal Government on November 27. However, just yesterday, ASUU president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, told Punch newspaper that the government was yet to implement or fulfil any of the offers it made to the union. According to him, the Government should not expect them to resume without releasing their salaries.

Kai! I might have to just change my daughter to a private university at this rate but mehn the school fees is usually on the high side!
