After a long period of strikes caused by tensions between the federal government and the University Teachers Union of Nigeria, university students continue to struggle with the situation.
National university students continue to express concern over a call by the ASUU teachers’ union for its members to look for a way to become self-reliant.
ASUU has also informed parents and university students themselves not to expect to return to school anytime soon.
The move comes after ASUU accused the government of negligence in meeting their demands, and suspended their salaries for eight months.
ASUU said it understands that the problem lies in the fact that schools are closed and students stay at home or in the body.
She took the initiative to inform university students to retire and return to school now.
But the news did not go down well with the students, and as some have told the BBC, the university teachers’ union and the federal government have put their lives in jeopardy over their inability to resolve their differences.
According to one student: “By God, you have not given us any mercy. You, the children of the poor, have pity on us. We have been living at home for eight months.
There have been frequent clashes between the two sides over mutual interests.
