NSUK Strike: ASUU Executives Meet With Student Union Leaders

ASUU Executive today met with Student Union leaders in Nasarawa State drawn from all the tertiary institutions in the state.

At the end of the meeting:

ASUU said government is yet to contact the Union after it replied them over two weeks ago. That they are waiting for government 's response to their last letter.

It said government has stopped payment of salaries of their members for two months now, which, it said, has complicated the matter.

The Chairman Dr. Lagi said the union cannot be intimidated into submission as they are ready to face any challenges in the course of the strike.

The Union said the strike continues until government shows commitment in meeting their demands.

The Union assured students that if government shows the willingness to meet their demands, especially in the area of funding, that it is ready to suspend the strike.

That commitment the Union said must be put in writing and signed by the Chairman of Governing Council of NSUK, Attorney General of Nasarawa State and National Legal Adviser of ASUU.

Meanwhile, student leaders will meet with the Chairman of Governing Council of NSUK, Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah, to see how both parties can come to terms and let the strike suspended. The date of the meeting is yet to be determined.

Thanks to Ofim K. Ofim, Mark Motion, Muwaffaq Yahaya, Zainab Mundi, Gordons James and Abbas Tasiu Abdullahi who represented MACOSA at the meeting.
