- Some Nigerian students have decided to reshape their lives by getting engaged with small businesses and learning skills
- In fact, some are cashing out and are not bothered anymore by the ASUU strike which is over six months now
- But a group has lamented the move by ASUU while noting that Nigerians no longer care about ASUU's demands and its negotiation, noting that the union has lost Nigerians' sympathy
On Monday, August 29, the Campaign for Equal Rights and Opportunities for all Nigerians, (CERON), said the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has lost the sympathy of Nigerians.
This is after the union decided to continue its strike action, six months after withdrawing its services from public universities.
In reaction, the group noted that such a move amounts to outright insensitivity to the plight of parents and students who had severally appealed to the union to call off the action, Vanguard reported.
