The group urges the federal government to be unfair to young Nigerians who have suffered as a result of the dispute, pointing out that the crisis has stalled education in the country.
CERON Secretary, Mr. Francis Odiir in a statement in Makurdi said it was unbelievable that the federal government could allow the crisis to linger despite the Speaker's promises that there would be a truce. . According to him, "After the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who gave all Nigerians hope for a peaceful resolution of the crisis with promises from the government, we were surprised.
“But they have to realize that what is happening now means that the education sector in Nigeria is largely stagnant. Those who have completed secondary education cannot be admitted to universities, except those whose parents can afford to pay for private universities, and today in Nigeria, how many people can afford it? "So the reality is that the education industry is currently in turmoil because of this crisis. This is why we are calling on the federal government to save the industry by paying cumulative salaries to ASUU members in order for us to have peace and have universities working again, no one needs to remind the government that Nigerians are very unhappy with many things in the country and that will help the government a lot if the ASUU crisis is resolved amicably.
