Members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in the South West and Kwara State have demanded an immediate resolution to the lingering strike that has crippled academic activities at various universities.
Channels Television reported that the union made the demand on Friday at a press conference held at the University of Ibadan in the Oyo State capital.
Abiodun Oloyede, the President of the Students’ Union Government (SUG) at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), spoke on behalf of the students.
They called for a compromise between the government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to put an end to the suffering of young Nigerians in the university.
The group also stressed the need for the government to recognise education as a major factor for sustainable growth and development, thereby making better funding of universities a priority.
A cross-section of Nigerians have supported the move, urging the union to be firm in their demand until both government and ASUU resolve the lingering strike.
