The President of the National Association of Kogi Students, Mr Abubakar Shuaib, has expressed sympathy with the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU over the death of Prof. Festus Iyayi.
Speaking to newsmen, Friday, in Lokoja, , Shuaib said that the association received the news of the death of Iyayi with shock.

Urging ASUU to find a lasting solution to the strike, Shuaib said, “if there was no strike, the professor would not have died.”
