Students of tertiary institutions in Nasarawa State have called for truce between the state government and labour unions of the three higher institutions currently on strike.
The students said both sides must take step to end the strike in the interest of the students.
It would be recalled that the Joint Union of Tertiary Institutions had embarked on an indefinite strike on April 5, demanding for promotion, payment of their annual increment and other entitlements.
The institutions involved in the strike include the College of Education, Akwanga, College of Agriculture, Lafia and Nasarawa State, Polytechnic, Lafia.
The students called for understanding between the state government and the union in resolving the industrial action, so that it would not have adverse effect on the education sector.
The state government had on the aftermath of the strike devolved the governing council of the three institutions which was thought to be a pathway towards settlement but nothing to ride home.
