After ASUU Strike: Lecturers in classes without students

While the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, last week suspended its three months old industrial action, many stakeholders were excited with the news, believing that at least students and lecturers can now return to classroom.

However, there are indications that though the strike was called off seven days ago and teachers back at school, many undergraduates and new admitted students were nowhere to be found on campus, as they preferred to remain with their parents at their respective homes.

Vanguard visits to some of the public institutions of higher learning in the country revealed a very low turnout of students on campus. Thus, while teachers are preparing for lectures, the students are nowhere to be found for learning.

Situational reports revealed that some of the available students at the University of Benin, UNIBEN, had arrived the campus before ASUU suspended the strike to serve as INEC official during the elections.
