Nigeria educational system: Resolving strike isn’t the solution

It is over seven months that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) embarked on an indefinite strike, thus depriving students of standard education, graduation time, and job opportunities at certain ages because most organizations and businesses employ young graduates, among others.  

Students, who are part of this situation (those who schools under the union) had cried daily and also with hopes that in a little while the lingering strike will be call-off which has been archived, but would this archived goal by the FG pave successful future for graduates while many are yet to be incorporated into the sector?

President Muhammadu Buhari, who spoke at the commemoration of the 2022 World Teachers Day in Abuja, stated that “Nigerian’s future relies heavily on education”. The question is, is there hope for students whose time had been extended due to the strike? Will students be allowed to seek employment in any sector of their choice without age limitation?  

As of August this year, a report by Clare Aririahu notes that “there are about 25 million unemployed graduates”. What are ASUU and FG doing to resolve this issue? yet the future of Nigeria depends heavily on the education of its younger generation. It would appear that ASUU just wants to produce more graduates while the FG wants to have more unemployed graduates on the streets.
