Some Nigerian students have taken to twitter to plead with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call of the 7-month old industrial action embarked upon by the union in March.
ASUU embarked on strike in March to press home demands over the non payment of Earned Academic Allowance (EAA) and issues of payment platform for the universities.
While the FG insists on paying the striking lecturers through the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), the union want payments to be done through the the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
See tweets from students begging ASUU to call of the strike:
another day, another week #ASUU plss calloff this strike.

ASUU is not the problem of Nigerian Education system FG is.
How can you not fulfill agreements you have with the union..
Why will you be paying some lecturers #8000 🤦
Why forcing them to join IPPIS when they are not civil servants
FG please allow us back to school!#asuu
