Niger Delta University students cry out as workers' strike clocks 2nd month
The students of Niger Delta University (NDU) Amassoma in Bayelsa State have bemoaned the ongoing industrial strike that has cripple academic activities in the school.

The students’ president of Faculty of Engineering Students, Baro Tamarakro in his words:

“Honestly, the impact of the strike on students has been negative. The industrial action has made some of us to venture into counterproductive things. As I speak, some of our female students have turned prostitution to ward off boredom.

“I wish to use this medium to appeal to Governor Seriake Dickson, who is the Visitor to the school, to address the lecturers’ grievances to enable us to return to school.

“The governor should call the lecturers to a roundtable for a settlement of the impasse. We are beginning to lose our temper and this is not good for the image of the state.”
