He explained that the ASUU in the state-owned university has no reason to continue with the strike.
 
“I don’t see any reason for the state own universities to continue with the strike because as the state government had already catered to their demands as at when due.
 
“About seventy percent of the Lecturers are state indigenes who suppose to show love and concern to the education of the upcoming leaders,” he said.
