ASUU strike: I feel like crying when I see empty school buildings – ABU VC



According to Prof. Kabiru Bala, Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, the strike dampens his spirit.

The Don made his remarks at an ASUU Kano Zone meeting on Monday.

Bala stated that the strike had lasted 140 days, negatively impacting the economy of host villages.

He encouraged the government, ASUU, and other stakeholders to evaluate the strike’s impact on residents.

According to Bala, Ahmadu Bello University has over 30,000 students who spend at least N300 each on food.

“We also have almost 13,000 employees, each of whom has three to five dependents that require daily feeding.”

“The strike also has far-reaching security concerns.”

The strike, according to Bala, is also hurting lecture halls, classrooms, and laboratories.

“I feel like crying when I gaze between the ABU Senate Building and the Engineering Department complex since no one is using the amenities.”

“This is government-provided infrastructure that has been lying fallow for months,” the VC protested.
