Educationist Pleads With ASUU to End Strike
An educationist, Mr David Ogbonna, has appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to suspend its ongoing nationwide strike in the interest of young Nigerian students.

Mr. Ogbonna, who is the Proprietor of Sunshine Primary and Secondary School, Nsukka, Enugu State, made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria ((NAN) on Thursday evening as he was asked about his thought in the ongoing strike.

According to the proprietor, ASUU should consider the plight of the students whose academic future is hanging in the balance of time due to the ongoing strike.

ASUU embarked on strike in November, 2018 to demand, among others, N1.1 trillion funding for universities and tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

He Said :-
“Some students have missed their graduation time, while others cannot be mobilised for National Youth Service Corps as a result of the ongoing nationwide strike."

“I plead with the union leadership and the Federal Government to resolve their disagreements to enable students to return to classes.
