Academic Staffs Union of Universities (ASUU) begin its warning strike on February 14 2022 to demand for better condition of service as agreed in 2009 but are yet to be implemented.
Then the strike was extended by two months as the government are yet to comply with their demands giving them more time to address it.
“The government did not treat the matters involved with utmost urgency they deserved during the four-week period as expected of a reasonable, responsive, and well-meaning administration”, as said by ASUU-NEC (ASUU National Executive Council)
Amidst of the ASUU and the government controversy, students are no longer sure of the duration of their academic programmes as Tertiary School Teaching activities are on hold.
Laycon who is also a Nigeria rapper revealed that it is so saddening seeing our government care more about the 2023 election instead of addressing the ASUU strike.
