Students Beg President Jonathan To Wade Into ASUU Strike

Students of the Ebonyi State University
(EBSU) on Friday begged President
Gooodluck Jonathan to wade into the
lingering ASUU and Federal Government

The students said that they looked up to Mr
President to personally intervene in the
face-off. Mr Louis Onwe, a 300-level
biochemistry student said: ”His intervention
into the ongoing crisis will lead to timely
resolution of the impasse and resumption of
academic work.”

He said that since the president enjoyed
enormous goodwill with the union, it would
listen to him if he intervened personally in
the face-off. “ASUU demands are quite
germane as it will boost research and
development of infrastructures in the
universities,” Onwe said.

Mr Kelechukwu Anyigor, also a 300-level
student of biochemistry, said they were
optimistic that Jonathan’s intervention was
needed to quickly resolve the strike. “Our
president enjoys tremendous goodwill
because of his human rights records, and his
attempt to reposition the country’s

“It is our candid belief that if he personally
intervenes in the matter, ASUU will listen to
him in the interest of the students and the
nation at large,” Anyigor said. Mr Michael
Otuu of the Department of Business
Administration, called on the president to
rise above politics and wade into the crisis in
the interest of Nigerian students and
university education.

According to him, the indefinite strike
already in its fifth week is having a negative
toll on the academic pursuit of university
students in the country.

Otuu called on well meaning Nigerians to
prevail on the federal government to accede
to the demands of ASUU in the interest of
industrial harmony in the system.

The National President of ASUU, Dr Isa
Fagge, declared a nationwide indefinite
strike on July 1 to protest the failure of the
government to honour the 2009 agreements
it reached with ASUU.
