The Nigerian students have called on the Federal Government to resolve the lingering crisis with the Academic Staff Union of Universities to avoid further delay of academic activities.
The leadership of the National Association of Nigerian Students Zone B made this demand while speaking to journalists in Asaba, Delta State.
The Coordinator, NANS Zone B, comprising of South-South/South-East, Mr Olise Alfred, admonished the Federal Government and the leadership of ASUU to find a common ground and resolve all lingering issues for the sake of the Nigerian students.
He said, “We are using this opportunity to call on Federal Government to as a matter of urgency resolve the lingering crisis with our lecturers.
“There has been unnecessary delay in various schools for students to graduate. Imagine a course of four, five years; some are spending seven and eight years as a result of FG/ ASUU crisis.”
The student leader also advised the federal government to shelve any plan to remove fuel subsidies, thereby paving way for an increase in the pump price of petroleum products.
He called on the students to always inform the association of any form of victimisation or harassment from lecturers and school management.
