In lieu of the lingering strike, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have made an open call for a bill to regulate how children of public officers would be able to enroll in schools outside the shores of Nigeria.

Prof. Kingdom Tombra, who is the Chairman of the University of Niger Delta University Wilberforce Island chapter of the union, had made this known at the solidarity protest organised by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday in Yenagoa.

Recall that the NLC embarked on the nationwide protest in solidarity with the ASUU and other affiliate unions over the lingering industrial action in public universities in Nigeria.

“If this is done, it will build a better society by developing formidable educational institutions and improve funding of the university system in Nigeria.

“This struggle is not against government, but about the working class and against the ruling class and we are very committed to it.

“If the rich and poor go to the same university or institution, I don’t think the strike will occur again.

“If they school here and their children are here, they will show total support for the university system and the tertiary institutions in Nigeria,” he said.

In another report, coming on the heels of the prolonged industrial action which had been embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and some other unions will begin a nationwide solidarity protest today as has been previously announced.

Africa Daily News, New York has also recalled that some of the university lecturers had on February 14, 2022, shut down most of the public universities in Nigeria over the inability of the Federal Government of Nigeria to fully implement some of the agreements the two parties entered into in previous years.

Despite negotiations and interventions by concerned citizens, the FG and the ASUU are yet to settle their differences after nearly 6 months.

The NLC had also alerted Nigerians that July 26 and 27 would be National Days of Protest across the country to force the FG and the striking lecturers to resolve their issues and suspend the lingering strike.
