Update on ASUU Strike 2013: The National Parent-Teacher-Association of Nigeria has asked the striking lecturers of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to see the extension of the resumption deadline as a sign of goodwill from the Federal Government.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, 4th Dec. the NAPTAN North Central Coordinator, Alhaji Danladi Aliyu, said the extension showed that the federal government was committed to ending the lingering asuu strike.
Aliyu said, “I am pleading with both parties not to see this issue as a war that must be won or lost as both are working in the interest of moving the nation forward.
“ASUU should use this deadline extension to resume duties, while we also urge the Federal Government not to come down hard on them.”
In a related development, Nnamdi Azikiwe University branch of ASUU has ordered its members that signed the attendance register to delete their names from the book ASAP.
