The Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria has called on students in the country to support their ongoing strike as their agitation is in their interest.
In a tweet thread on Monday, with trending hashtag ASUU on Twitter, the Union described students as their partners in progress, urging them to show understanding as they continue with their strike action.
“Students who are our children and partners in progress should show understanding, what we are asking from the government are in their interest and the interest of the nation, good hostel accommodation, good classroom blocks that can engender effective learning,…….. #asuu
“Laboratories where cutting edge research can be carried out and offices that can drive the process of quality university education.
“So what we are asking of the government are not baseless things, but those things that in 2012, the government conducted during a needs assessment survey and found out that there is widespread rot and decay in the university system.”
The trending tweets have gathered over 16000 tweets, replies, and mentions.
