Jubilation in BUK as Organised Labour suspends industrial strike

Some students of Bayero University, Kano on Wednesday night took to the streets within the university to celebrate the decision of the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress to suspend the nationwide strike.

The PUNCH reports that the university management on Tuesday suspended the ongoing 2022/2023 first-semester examinations and all other academic activities till further notice.

The suspension of the examinations followed the nationwide strike embarked upon by NLC and TUC and the subsequent decision by the university unions to join the strike.

One of the students told The PUNCH in a telephone interview that the students felt elated as a result of suspending the strike, and lauded the NLC and TUC for ending the strike.

“We also commend the National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, for his intervention in the crisis,” the student said.

He said most of the students especially those who have yet to finish their examinations were happy about the suspension of the strike.
