Students of Cross River University of Technology, CRUTECH, have threatened to take to the streets to protest incessant disruption of academic activities in the university.
Lecturers in the university had on Monday embarked on hunger strike to protest the nonpayment of their salaries.
The action of academic staff that are owed four months salaries has crippled academic activities in the institution.
Reacting to the hunger strike embarked upon by their lecturers, some CRUTECH students told Nigerian pilot that they were tired of incessant disruption of academic activities in the university.
The students, who said they were in total solidarity with their lecturers however appealed to the state government to find urgent solutions to the problem.
A civil engineering student in the university, Mr. Cyril Eyam said they were tired of frequent disruptions of academic activities in CRUTECH.
He disclosed that most of them had spent more years in the university due to incessant strikes by the staff.
Mr. Eyam said they would no longer tolerate disruption of academic activities in CRUTECH, “because we want to graduate and leave the institution.”
Another student of the university, Mr. Fred Ayamba, blamed the Cross River state government for the crisis plaguing the institution.
According to him, “CRUTECH staff are owed four months salary, how are they expected to survive? If the state is tired of funding the university, it should be scrapped.”
Mr. Ayamba disclosed that the students might be forced to take to the streets to compel the state government to meet its obligation to the university staff.
