We are not too sure if students have been enjoying the strike but we do know a lot of students have been talking about the strike and their hopes of it being called off. The Minister of Education Adamu Adamu has said that he expects that the ASUU strike will be called off within the week. Punch reports that Adamu said this while briefing journalists on Sunday, revealing that the issues that led to the strike have been resolved.”I should comment now on the ongoing strike which I hope will be called off today or perhaps tomorrow but certainly there will be no strike by next week.
I expected that by now ASUU would have called off their strike because we have virtually reached agreement on all issues. So, I hope either today or tomorrow but certainly within the week, ASUU strike will be off.
ASUU president, Biodun Ogunyemi, however said that he is not in a position to state if the strike will be called off or not. He said:
I cannot tell you if the strike will end on Thursday or not. It is what our members tell us. ASUU president doesn’t have the final say on that.
Government has given us what it can give us and we have sent it back to our members. We are waiting for their response.
