We use this medium to urge the Federal Government and ASUU to work out the best modalities to resolve issues rather than strike if they have not done so.
Nigerian students and youths of this country, will never accept this ever again.
On this platform, we have listed the economic hardship not only for the students who passed through this period but, people doing business on various campuses.
University campuses across the country, which provide a learning environment, are also a hub of business activities. During a busy academic session, life on campus bubbles with the businesses providing the different flavors needed by campus dwellers.
These businesses provide services ranging from transport solutions to necessities to cosmetics and clothing. All that students need, can usually be found within the vicinity of their campuses, within their reach.
While these businesses support life on campus, it also provides a means of livelihood for the traders. Most of the people who ply their trade on campus solely depend on it and fall within the low-income percentile in the country.
Thus a closure of schools equals loss of income and only serves to widen the poverty gap in the economy.
We hereby congratulate the students on this latest development and thank them for being calm and law-abiding throughout the eight (8) months ASUU strike.
