The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities Professor Emmanuel Osodeke says university lecturers are opting to engage in non-academic activities to make a living as its strike action lingers.

Osodeke in a recent interview said the government’s decision not to meet the union’s demands is hurting the nation including failure to agree to pay for the six months during which its members exited classrooms.

On Saturday, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities SSANU and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions NASU suspended their strike actions after the Federal Government committed 50 billion naira to pay earned allowances for university staff, including ASUU’s.

However, activities in public universities are expected to remain limited as ASUU remains on strike.

He said so many lecturers are leaving to engage in farming and others because they are tired of the treatment they’re receiving from the government and are looking for alternatives instead of coming to beg.
