December 10, 2013 – ASUU Strike Latest News For December 2013: NLC Writes President Jonathan For Intervention

The ongoing battle between ASUU officials and the Federal Government of Nigeria has intensified after 13 hours of resolution meeting proved abortive.

This has forced ASUU to call the attention of the Nigeria Labour Congress for intervention.

This was disclosed in a press briefing by a representative of NLC on Monday.

NLC’s acting Secretary General, Mr Chris Uyot told NAN in Abuja yesterday that an official letter has been sent President Jonathan in Abuja.

“The leadership of NLC has written a letter to the Presidency seeking leave to intervene in the crisis which is now in its sixth month.

“We have sent a letter to the presidency today, December 9. We want to intervene in this matter.

“The turn of events is causing a lot of disaffection which can easily be resolved, that is if the government is willing to talk about it,” Uyot told newsmen.

I feel for these students. How long will the Federal Government continue to mess up the educational system of this great country.

Five months at home doing nothing is just too much.

    • I don’t av much to say dan to tell our friends dat are still in sch,to go and learn something at hand to secure deir daily needs.

  1. i am pushed to d wall by dis strike issue.. An am very sure am nt d only1 pushed to d wall… Wen dis game btwn asuu n fg contnrs who knws wht will happn.. Let dis game end… D sooner d better

  3. SHAME ON PRESENT NLC, DURING ADAMS OSHOMOHOLE THEIR IS NOT LIKE THIS. BUT NOW WE HAVE A LAZY AND CORUPT NLC PRESIDENT THINGS ARE NOT THE WAY WE EXPECT.

  4. I don tire 4 dis strike abeg asuu nd FG make una pity us I no we r nt una children bt plss pity us d poor children…

  5. We the Students are terribly tired of staying at home. We do hope and pray that this industrial action come to an end.

  6. ASUU and Federal government, we re beging for u to clean student and parent tears, we the poor ones has noting to do, one of our greet leader fastus iyaye died in the cost strike do people knows who is the person? So please save life now before it get late, 200 level Nsuk.

  7. It is too late to give up. It is this giving up that made Nigeria what it is today…a country of cowardice. If ASUU gives up now the federal government will sit tight on the next issue whether its ASUU or NLC or Police or any other group. Nigerians should learn how to be persistent when the demand is right like in this ASUU case. In the 80s when I was a student we use to bring the government to their knees but students of these days are all weaklings and yahoos. Nigeria’s female students can bring the government down instead they choose to sleep with their toto with these government officials. ASUU don’t give up, it is your right.

  8. I have no trust for NLC because they never stay on their feet,they always bribrily shifted ground in a struggle as we noticed among others the anti-subsidy removal protest where they deceived us because they planned it with gov.

  9. dis strike is not funny at all,we ve bn home for 6 months now,i dnt knw hw to face my landlord in schl now..i tink we the student will hv to go on strike for lodge rent or house rent……fg plz alart every student in there various schools,we need money bc i cant pay for what i dnt use……….300level,buz adm

  10. Why federal government don’t want to make the demand of ASUU and then ASUU will call off it’s old six months strike and students will go back to school.

  11. It is a pity that our leaders are not sincere to the general populace, the children of the wealthy once including some member of ASUU are in the private University, some outside the country, who is deceiving who? If we are to be sincere to our self, this strike is political, APC is fuelling it. Our leaders in this Country are just playing with the future of the youths which have grave consequences, like the BH in the north. Let us learn from MADIBA. God bless Nigeria.

  12. ASUU pls stand for ur right,cos if it is militant dat demanded for d money FG for no waste time to give….dem no wan die bt de wan go heaven ….

  13. I tend to agree with Okon, even if i do not subscribe to his choice of diction i.e ‘toto’. Students should have been out protesting massively since month 2. Education is a necessity, and quality education, our right. Lets rally behind Asuu, to correct this INJUSTICE! Its our country, lets take responsibility and fix it. Our govt (representatives) have been and are FAILURES!

    • If must rally, we must have our own reason of doing so, our own purpose, we must rally for our right, not for asuu, not for fed govt…cos asuu has already been compromised… Thanks…

  14. Do you no what i have to say about dis, am getting tired of going back to school after disxmass if noting good is done am going to quite to a private school and manage my remaining time rader than waiting fo rdis men that cant understand there selves to reasulve there problems.i just spoke my mind pure

  15. Aluta continua Victoria acerta May God take control of dis strike 4 asuu r nw sabotised by govt officials 2 put ugly pix on gej…bt final wetin mi get 2 talk na 4 una(asuu n fg)mk una put an end 2 dis industrial action kus 2marow nw na una go cal us half baked stdnt or quarter bked stdnt….wi stdnt don tube o.GR8TEST UMUDYKES!!!

  16. Even if the Federal pays ASUU a minimum of N45,000,000.00 per month, they will still strike again in the next 2 years. Government should hand over the Treasury for ASUU to manage. Money no dey do man at all Medical doctors supposed also join. Nurses should get prepared. Shame////

  17. It’s so painful that we don’t value education in Nigeria, How would universities b on strike for 6momths? Even the NANS can’t bring a positive effect and Legislators Its a shame.

  18. I just pray that the Lord play with all the people involve in this strike as they have played with us and I pray their own last forever with tears in their eyes,I hate asuu n fg

  19. It quite unfortunate that the government of our dear nation seems to be unreal inspite of all series of meetings held with her. I think, we Nigerians can see the sort of leaders we have, who are only there for their selfish interest using it for oppression of all sort. What are our Federal legislators of both house doing to intervene? This is a mark of total oppression from our so called leaders. Please, let NUPENG whom I heard once in rumor to sympathies with ASSU on a just cause they fighting, please come and assist ASSU to release students from home we are tired being at being home.
