according to dependable resources, the staff aren't relaxed with the fact that only about one of the seven needs, that is the difficulty of team of workers schools of the universities turned into convincingly addressed with the aid of the authorities. authorities handiest made guarantees as regards the alternative demands which do no longer show any distinction from what became on ground before the strike.Accordin to reviews from from the congresses which have met suggest that the unions have been no longer geared up to call of the strike because the authorities is yet to reveal the essential commitment to their plights. for instance, in congresses held the day prior to this on the university of Ibadan, UI, and Ekiti country university, Ado-Ekiti, EKSU, members of the union determined to keep with the strike motion on the ground that the Federal government’s offers are not ideal to them.
As at the time of filing this record, UI become devoid of activities as all unions on campus each educational and non educational have embarked on indefinite strike.
A lecturer from EKSU said, “we have agreed that the strike have to hold till the Federal authorities is ready to supply our demands in practical manner now not in promissory act”.


In one of the interaction with the media after the final meeting the union had with the authorities, ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi stated that he couldn't determine while the union could call off its strike adding that calling off the strike could be decided via the entire contributors of the union.
However, the results of the strike has commenced to show up as a few students who've secured employments have decided to desert their educational programmes.
A master’s degree scholar of UI who did not need his name noted said, “i have been looking for a activity for a while now. because I don’t need to be sitting at domestic, I obtained a postgraduate form and i used to be admitted. We were about to begin our examination when the strike movement began. Now i have a activity. i'm able to’t trade the process with the master’s prpogramme. If I decide to go away the job and move returned to high school while the strike motion is over, what offers me the influence that i will get a task as quickly as i am through with the grasp’s programme? i can do the master’s programme when it's far greater handy”.
any other student stated, “i am thinking about private university, perhaps BABCOCK or Lead metropolis university. government universities in Nigeria are getting a hassle and time waster. unfortunately, we don’t have responsible government who can be geared up to do what the unions are inquiring for. First, human beings in authorities will selected to embezzle human beings’s money or mismanage it as opposed to the use of it for public good. seeing that Nigeria has been in recession, have you heard political office holders reducing their salaries and allowances? go to the countrywide meeting, and notice the unique automobiles they are buying. Their salaries are been paid as at when due. below the nostril of President Muhammadu Buhari, the ones in the govt also are stealing. what number of thieves will Buhari trap? except the system is working, nothing right can come from Nigeria”.
To some woman college students, the strike action is a blessing to them as some pregnant woman students introduced babies. one in all them stated, “I thank God because I don’t realize how i would have coped. I gave start within two weeks the strike movement began. which means that i would have given start to my baby at the same time as my first semester exam is on-going. which means i'd have not been capable of write all my papers. so that you can see now that it is a blessing for me. If the strike action is called off now, as a minimum i can take a seat for my exam and graduate when my pals are graduating”.
