In a letter dated July 19, 2022, addressed to Minister of Education Adamu Adamu, the organization, which consists of the presidents of all student unions at federal universities in Nigeria, gave the federal government seven days to settle their dispute with ASUU.

The CSUP Convener, Shuaib Yahaya, stated that all of the Student leaders have agreed not to back down from their decision to begin the planned demonstration in an interview with Sunday PUNCH on Saturday.

According to him, the ongoing strike action has adversely affected students in the country, stressing that some now engage in illegal activities.

He said, “If the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities do not reach to resolve, after the seven days, we are going to carry out a mass action that will involve all SUG presidents in Nigeria and we will be converging at Abuja and we continue to demonstrate peacefully until the Strike is called off.

“Over time, whenever we delegate certain persons for the interest of others, they compromise. So we are not working with any delegation as we are concerned.

“This time around nobody is ready to come and compromise. We are ready to face the sacrifice and challenge.

He further said, “There is a statement that an idle hand is the devil’s workshop, so many of our students have adopted the act of illegal activities because they are at home doing nothing. The strike has succeeded at increasing the level of internet fraud.

“But if the school was in session and students were engaged with academic activities, there would be no such thought of getting involved in internet fraud.

“Personally, I am supposed to have graduated by now which would have been done a month ago. But here I am, I am still waiting on ASUU to call off the strike before we can go back. The strike can also reduce the level of interest in education.

“If a student sits at home doing nothing, he or she begins to think otherwise and if this otherwise starts working then you should be sure that the interest of such a person will definitely be reduced.

“What we are after as students is that the federal government and ASUU should just reach a resolution. In every negotiation table, there is always a space the both parties will have to compromise on a particular aspect of that negotiation.
