Since the beginning of the strike on February 14th, students have been staying home but the Nasarawa State University,Keffi(NSUK) has directed its students to resume back.
President of the institution’s Student Union Government(SUG),Naajim Gbefwi, urged the students to follow the direction of the school management.
He said this at a news conference in Keffi where it was revealed that the school was to resume all its academic activities on September 28th.
“We want to state conspicuously that our allegiance as students is to the school authority. Therefore, we are fully in support of the decision of the school management to reopen our school and continue academic activities, seeing that our primary purpose for being here and our prime interest as a union is achieved,” he said
He told the students not to fear as the school would continue normal activities with support from the state government and the school management.
“Honestly we are very sympathetic towards the plight of ASUU members at all levels as we also stand to benefit from their struggle directly or indirectly.We hope their demands are met and education shifts up our national scale of preference,”Gbefwi said.
He also appealed to ASUU not to interfere with the resumption as the students had already lost a lot of time in their academics since the strike started.
The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) NSUK branch,Samuel Alu,said that he was not in support of the action and would continue to advocate the nationwide strike until they got the desired results from the federal government.
