Students at Plateau State University in Bokkos have started a demonstration to express their displeasure with the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) continuing three-month labor strike.
The state capital, Jos, was traversed by the unhappy students on a march through its principal streets, culminating at the government house located in Little Rayfield. There, Samuel Jatau, the state’s secretary to government, greeted and briefed them.
In November 2023, university lecturers began an indefinite walkout, citing a number of requests from the state administration.
Since then, there have been no lectures, which has affected the admissions process for new students and created uncertainty for graduating students on the date of their final exams. Students have stayed at home instead.
Students’ dissatisfaction prompted them to plan a protest, during which they carried posters emphasizing different requests.
The state secretary to the government of the state advised the irate students to wait patiently while the government addressed the issues brought up by the instructors.
The completion of campus road networks, the provision of staff quarters, and more hostel accommodations are among the demands made by the professors.
