Students of the
University of Lagos (Unilag) have
shown their eagerness to resume
school next week, as clamoured for
by some members of the
institution’s Academic Staff Union of
Nigerian Universities (ASUU).
In an interview with journalists on
Wednesday, a final year of the
Faculty of Arts in the university
(names withheld), expressed her
regret at the elongated strike and
how it would prevent her from
graduating at the expected time.
“We were supposed to be mobilised
with the NYSC batch A in March but
that is no longer certain. We are
just being delayed unnecessarily,”
she said.
Four other students, in a group
interview, also disapproved the
strike, as it was the students who
were being affected the most, while
pointing out that the students had
lost a semester to the strike.
It will be recalled that on Monday,
controversy began to trail the
continued participation of Unilag in
the nationwide ASUU strike as some
lecturers in the institution gave the
branch of the union an ultimatum,
that elapses this week, to resume.
The Unilag ASUU leaders, Dr Karo
Ogbinaka, however, insisted the
university’s continued participation
in the strike until it is called off
