Students under the aegis of the National Association of University Students (NAUS), Osun Campus Monitoring Committee, have urged the Federal Government and striking lecturers to return to the negotiation table and resolve the ongoing crisis.
In a press statement released by NAUS on Friday, signed by its Chairman, Secretary-General, and Publicity Secretary; Eruobami Ayobami, Olaniyan Saleem, and Lawal Idris, respectively, made available to our correspondent, the student body bemoaned the continued closure of schools following the strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
It said the strike which was already over 60 days was beginning to take a negative turn on students, particularly now that they seemed not to know when the challenge was coming to an end.
NAUS stated that it had earlier called the attention of the government to the issues affecting Nigerian students.
The student body also called on the government to pay the allowances owed to the lecturers and to equally lift the dying infrastructures on campuses to meet the 21st-century standards.
