The chairman of NALVEJ in Kwara State, Alh Tunde Akanbi made the appeal in a statement signed by the league’s publicity secretary, Alh Abdullahi Olesin.

The league advised the federal government and ASUU leadership to return to the negotiating table to iron out the grey areas in the contentious 2009 FG/ ASUU agreement.

It suggested that the government, in the alternative could start piecemeal implementation of the 2009 agreement it reached with ASUU, after securing the understanding of ASUU leadership.

” The NALVEJ appeals to ASUU to reconsider it’s current stand in the interest of the nation and call-off its strike action.We are pleading with ASUU leadership to consider the plight of the students and their parents, in calling off the strike action,” the league added.
