''Students don’t want us to call off the strike''...ASUU President

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it is continuing its nationwide strike on the advice of university students.

President of the union,  Dr. Nasir Isa Fagge said:
“Our students have come out to say they don’t want us to call off the strike until the Federal Government answers us, because they don’t want us to call off now and later we go back to strike again. So, we are heeding the advice of our students”. 

On the complaint by the Federal Government that it lacked the funds to implement the 2009 agreement, Fagge said it was not all about money, noting that government did not need funds to start implementing some parts of the agreement.

“There are issues and agreement they can implement without money. Why don’t they begin with those ones?” he asked.
He added that it was unfortunate that the government had pulled out of dialogue with ASUU, stating that the union would not be intimidated.
He said, “Now, government has pulled out of the dialogue. We thought we were the ones going on strike, but now government has also gone on strike.”
