Students of the University of Abuja are currently protesting the strike embarked upon by the univeristy’s local chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) along the Gwagwalada- Giri highway in Abuja.
Some of the students who spoke to schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine, they were aggrieved about the high handedness of the university authorities. They claimed their lecturers were on strike due to unpaid allowances by the school management.
According to the students, they have been left to bear the brunt of the current face-off between their lecturers and the school authorities and therefore called on government to intervene.
A lecturer in the University, Hamisu AbdulRahman, disclosed to schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine that part of the lecturers’ grievances is the refusal of the outgoing Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Sunday Adelabu, to pay outstanding marking allowances even as he is planning to spend a huge amount of money on his planned convocation.
