The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on strike for the better part of 2020.
ASUU recently told students to learn a trade as its impasse with the Muhammadu Buhari government could last for years.
But the Universities Students Union Presidents of the Southwest region has now given the government seven days to end the ASUU strike and resolve all issues.
The group vowed to launch massive and “agressive” nationwide protests if the Buhari government fails end the strike immediately.
This ultimatum was issued on November 12 during the Universities Students Union Press Conference themed: “ASUU Strike: The Students’ Union Position And Way Forward.”
The deliberations of these student leaders were largely based on the dire need for the federal government to prioritise the educational sector, harping that the struggle of ASUU should never be undermined.
The union leaders also suggested the federal government form a committee comprising all students’ union leaders across the federation as well as government representatives to address the students’ welfare.
