Meanwhile, some Nigerians on Twitter, who are likely students, have reacted to the announcement which some of them say, does not show any signs of seriousness on the part of ASUU.
I thought ASSU had plans for the students…It obvious they dont care for the future,well the masses has no say in this!!!!

Another Twitter user @AareHmd reacted thus:
I weep for this county future
I weep for we poor masses
I weep because we have no hope
I weep because people fighting for us are not real.@ASUUNGR is not real😭, they are greeedy and selfish, their fight is not pure, they don’t act what they are saying!
I’m so ashamed 😭

Others are however confused as to how the students will benefit from the recent development.
Meaning what? Is that an end to the strike or just for the election?

Whatever the situation may be, Nigerian students will soon find out if they will be staying at home until the February 2019 elections are over.
