Stu­dents ap­peal to var­sity lec­tur­ers to end strike

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

The Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Kogi State Stu­dents (NAKOSS) yes­ter­day ap­pealed to the strik­ing lec­tur­ers of the state univer­sity to call off their three­month strike in the overall in­ter­est of the state.

Pres­i­dent of the as­so­ci­a­tion, Com­rade Ah­madu Ibrahim, said at a news brief­ing in Lokoja that the in­dus­trial dis­pute had im­pacted neg­a­tively on stu­dents’ ed­u­ca­tion and fu­ture.

Ah­madu said the lec­tur­ers should call off their in­dus­trial ac­tion and give room for ne­go­ti­a­tion since the gov­ern­ment had met about 80 per­cent of their de­mands.

The NAKOSS pres­i­dent ex­pressed sur­prise over the re­cent ul­ti­ma­tum given to the gov­ern­ment to pay the strik­ing lec­tur­ers by the lead­er­ship of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­rian Stu­dents (NANS), say­ing NAKOSS was never in­formed be­fore the de­ci­sion was taken.
