A Nigerian group, The Education Right Campaign has called on the Nigerian federal government to meet ASUU demands so that the universities can be re-opened.
In a press statement by ERC’s Deputy National Coordinator, Ogunjimi Isaac Ayobami on Tuesday called for students and parents to embark on nationwide protests and demonstrations to compel government to fund public education.
The group also accused the Minister of Labour, of making false promises of the strike ending soon.
The statement also read “We want to put on record that it is this kind of distasteful approach to negotiation based on lies, subterfuge, and appeal to base sentiment which has built up decades of mistrust and suspicion between unions and the Federal Government”.
“Nigerian students have suffered too much already but the antics of the Federal government shows the Buhari APC capitalist regime does not care. Hence, the need for mass protests and demonstrations to kick off nationwide to send a note of warning to the Federal Government that students can no more tolerates the delay and closure.”
