Miss Asari(HALL 9 Chair) pointed out that ASUU strike plus the COVID break added with the step down issue of accreditation, student have stayed so many years in University.. ASUU shouldn’t embark on any strike.
Mr Philip(HALL 4 Chair) asked a question and made a suggestion on what’s the possible effectiveness if embarked on the strike especially when FG doesn’t have a listening ear to ASUU rather seems to have in relating matters brought by the Nigera Labors Congress(NLC) how about colloboration to fight and beat up this movement.
Senator Samuel(Representative of Faculty of Engineering and Technology) exoansiates on paying tuition fees but relating dues and payment still comes out which is disheartening and ASUU is self centered and selfish. IPPIS is paying people who aren’t supposed to be paid.

Other relating opinions of forming a committee to help ASUU in the moment and also creating a platform for exceutives and student members for the Committee of ASUU Student Relations. Also galvanizing the force of the students and understanding the issue at hand will help avert because if lecturers who parents as well ain’t properly fed to feed the young ones…there will be extortion and lecturing process will be through the pass stage not acquiring knowledge level.
