Barely forty eight (48) hours to the expiration of the ultimatum handed to the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) by the Education Minister and there is no end in sight for the five months old strike action.
The Supervising minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike had on Thursday warned striking lecturers to return to the lecture rooms in Seven (7) days or risk losing their jobs.
That ultimatum will expire on Wednesday but ASUU seems unfazed by the ultimatum as they have advised Parents/Guardians not to risk the lives of their children/wards by sending them back to the campuses as the strike has not been called off.
The Senate President, David Mark has condemned the ultimatum given to ASUU but has also begged them to resume work. Nigeria’s leading opposition party, All Progressive Change has also condemned the government for issuing such a threat
