The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday told parents who have their children in Nigerian Universities to look outside the box and create other avenues of being a better person for the youths.
This is coming after several meetings with the Federal Government that has ended in a deadlock.
Although several calls had been made to ASUU to shift ground on her demands but this had fallen on deaf ears.
The union through its tweeter handle has advised students and ASUU members to see the strike as an opportunity to acquire skills, learn a new trade and start another business to generate income.
“Today, we wish to let Nigerians especially our students and parents know that there is no hope in sight to ending or suspending the ASUU strike that has lingered for several months as Government is yet to show serious commitment towards addressing our core demands. Our members have been advised to seek other legitimate means of survival as the Government has not released salaries withheld since February 2020”, the tweet reads.
ASUU further said that the strike is not for selfish gains as many claims to be. ASUU finally and again made known that the strike is to put education is a better pedestal and save Nigeria Universities from the dead mission it has embarked on several years ago.
Saying the time to put the broken bricks together is no time but now.
“ASUU is fighting the people’s battle. What ASUU is really fighting for is to stop the total collapse of University education. Our demands are not selfishly motivated…”, ASUU said.
“Strike has not been suspended!!.”, ASUU concluded.
