Meanwhile the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) President, Emmanuel Osodeke, had said on Monday, 10th October, that the union is hopeful that the protracted strike will soon come to an end and that there is now “light at the end of the tunnel”;
Osodeke made this statement during a meeting with the House of Representatives leadership, which was chaired by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila.
“Please, let all of us work together to put a beautiful end to this end to this thing we have started so that every Nigerian will be proud that we have universities we can be proud of.
Once again, I want to thank you. I also extend our appreciation to the president for intervening, I want to appeal that in the future, we should not allow strikes to linger. The strike should not go beyond two days.
For the first time, we have seen light at the end of the tunnel.
We say congratulations to all the Nigerian Students for holding out this long, Hopefully this will be the end of Asuu strikes.
