According to the committee, the NLC threatened to hold protests against the lingering ASUU strike within the subsisting 21-day ultimatum.

It also said affiliates of the NLC were to issue public statements condemning the intermittent strikes in Nigeria’s universities.

The NLC added that the protest was to pull the attention of the government to the “inherent catastrophe in the emerging culture of social apartheid in the society, by prolonged lockout from academics of students from poor homes.”
