The Academic Staff Union of Universities was urged to end its current strike by the Department of State Services on Thursday. 

At the third quarterly conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone in Damaturu, the Director of the Service responsible for Yobe, Mr. Yunusa Abdulkadir, made the appeal. 

He pointed out that the strike has security ramifications because it prevented the country's universities from operating. 

"While we are aware that ASUU is working for a just cause, they ought to look more closely at the idiosyncrasies of the North-East region, which has been under insurgent control for more than ten years," Yunusa remarked.

According to the report, this is especially true in the areas of job creation, finance for infrastructure, relationships with the private sector, revitalization of the power sector, eradication of poverty, debt management, and general economic management.
