Nigerians have been baring their mind on the assurance by the Speaker, the Federal House of Representatives, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila and the National President, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU that the lingering strike would come to an end within days.

The assurance followed recent intervention by the Lower Chamber on the crises and unresolved judicial involvement in the conflict.

Reacting to the statements, some residents of Ibadan, including Mr Isiaq Abdulkabiru described the position of the two bodies as a welcome development.

They appealed to ASUU and the Federal Government to consider the plights of students and restore the dead academic activities on the nation’s campuses.

Meanwhile, the ASUU Chairman, University of Ibadan Chapter, Professor Ayoola Akinwole, in an interview with newsmen in Ibadan, has described the general opinion on the Union’s plans to call off the eight months strike as mere speculation.

Professor Akinwole said ASUU members were awaiting the outcome of the National Executive Council’s meeting before any decision could be taken at the branch level.

The ASUU strike which commenced on 14th February this year marks eight months old this Friday 14th October 2022.
