The President of the Students’ Union Government (SUG) at the University of Jos, (Unijos) Ajik Magaji, on Tuesday, 10th Dec. appealed to the striking lecturers to disregard threats of mass sack attributed to the supervising Minister of Education, Nyesome Wike, and call off its five months strike in the interest of parents and students.
Magaji in an interview with newsmen in Jos described the minister’s threat as unnecessary, saying it was capable of escalating the issue but appealed to lecturers to have faith in the agreement reached with the president and end the strike.
“We understand that at the end of the meeting between the leadership of ASUU and the president, there was an agreement between both parties.
Having come this far, we wonder why the supervising minister of education would come out threatening the striking lecturers with mass sack if the strike is not called off. We believe it is time we all come together once again as major stakeholders in the affairs of the education sector to chart a new course for advancing the sector and improving the standard of our institutions’ he said.
He appealed to lecturers to disregard any comments made by the minister of education and honour their part of the agreement by calling off the strike.
More to come on Asuu Strike.
