Aftermath of ASUU Strike: UniJos Students Appeal To Landlords To Slash Rent

Agabus Pwanagba

Following the suspension of the over five months old strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the University of Jos

Student Union Government (SUG), has appealed to landlords of students of the institution to collect only 50 percent of rent owed by students

during the strike. The appeal was made through its President, Ajik Magaji, in a chat with African Examiner on Wednesday in Jos.

The students appeal came after ASUU suspended its over five months old strike which they embarked on July 1, 2013.

ASUUThe University lecturers’ industrial action was to compel the Federal Government to implement the 2009 agreement it entered into with the

union. The SUG President said, the passionate appeal if heeded by the landlords would assist the students in no small measure in their academic pursuit.

According to him, “We are appealing to the landlords on compassionate ground not as right owing to the fact that none of us was prepared for the strike.

“Students staying off campus stayed away from their accommodation for six months, we are appealing to landlords to help them and collect 50 per cent of the rent.

“The strike is six months, let them collect three months from the students for the period,’’ he appealed.
