SSS implores ASUU to call off strike over security concerns

The State Security Service, SSS, on Thursday appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off the ongoing strike over security implications.

The Director of the Service in charge of Yobe, Yunusa Abdulkadir made the plea in Damaturu at the Third Quarterly Conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone.

“In as much as we know that ASUU is pursuing a genuine cause, they should take a deeper look at the peculiarities of North-East region that has stayed for over a decade in the hands of insurgents,” Mr Yunusa said.

Thousands of students, majorly youths, have been rendered idle for over seven months due to the closure of public universities occasioned by the ASUU strike.
