The federal government has been warned of the consequences of failing to resolve ongoing strike action by the Academic Union of Universities.
 
Student Union Government (SUG) of Federal University in Lokoja said the government will witness protest worse that what they saw during the ENDSARS period.
 
The students also issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Federal Government of Nigeria to, as a matter of urgency, resolve all the lingering issues with the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU).
 
The body stated that at the expiration of the ultimatum, they would be left without any option but to embark on a nationwide protest to drive home their demands.
 
President of the students union body at the Federal University in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, Comrade Oguche Ojofeyo, who led his members on a peaceful protest on Thursday, made this known while speaking with newsmen at the university’s main campus in Lokoja.
 
Comrade Oguche stated that their demand is for the Federal Government to urgently resolve all the lingering rancour with ASUU warning that the Student Union Government as a body might be forced to block all the highways and Federal Government infrastructures if the three months old strike action embarked upon by ASUU is not resolved appropriately within the next seven days.
 
He noted that the nationwide protests might be far beyond the EndSARS protest of 2020, saying that Nigerian students are fed up with the incessant strike action.
 
He decried the situation in which Nigerian students have been subjected to the stagnated academic calendar as unbearable and unacceptable saying that “employment has age limit and NYSC also comes with an age limit.”
 
The SUG President further decried that the incessant strike action has taken its toll on the students’ mental and physiological states.
 
He expressed sadness, that the Federal Government’s actions or inaction would have enormous jeopardy to the future of the students since their ages are counting by the day.
 
Some of the students, who spoke with newsmen equally lamented the adverse effects of the strike action on the students’ economic well-being which includes extended payment of house rents that is more than necessary.
