Some of the students therefore have expressed bitter disappointment over the strike.

One of them said, “Why will they declare strike now? We have lost enough time to various strikes and protests in the school. We don’t know when we are going to resume. ASUU people should please consider their position and call off the strike”.

Equally affected by the ongoing strike are private business owners who strongly condemned the action as it has greatly affected their businesses. One of them is reported complaining, “I am really in trouble. Where do I go now to sell my wares? Students who are my customers would head back home.
