ASUU: Students acquire new skills as strike approaches fourth week
Students in Kaduna told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) this in separate interviews on Wednesday.
An undergraduate studying Nigerian languages at Bayero University Kano (BUK) named Hajara Muhammed expressed her dissatisfaction with the school’s decision to extend the initial warning strike.
Mohammad explained that she would use the two months to learn fashion design in order to grow as an individual and get her hands on a project.
As a 300-level student, according to our school timetable, we are supposed to finish the semester in one month, but this strike has thrown a wrench in our preparations. ”
To avoid staying at home and doing nothing, she chose to study a skill so that by the time she graduates, she will be able to make money from her talent instead of waiting for a white collar job.

One Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria 200 level engineering student Emmanuel Jonah expressed his displeasure with the strike but promised to use it to his advantage.
It was mentioned that he had signed up for a digital marketing program in order to improve his digital business acumen, which he claimed produces a lot of money.
While ASUU’s dispute with the federal government should be resolved quickly, Jonah urged the two parties to reach a deal so that students in public universities could resume their studies.
It’s not the first time that students at BUK’s Mass Communication program have expressed an interest in working in a real-world journalism environment.
In order to improve her reporting and writing skills before the ASUU strike ends, she says, “I just want to put into practice the theories I have been learning in school.
As of Feb. 14, according to NAN, ASUU had begun a nationwide warning strike to hammer home the demands of its members.
They want money for initiatives like Revitalizing Public Universities, Earned Academic Allowances, the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), and back pay for promotions.
As of the 14th of March, the union declared that it will extend its eight-week roll-over strike to give the federal government more time to address the issues at hand in concrete terms.
