The ASUU had embarked on a one-month warning strike over the Federal Government’s failure to implement the Memorandum of Action it signed.
The union had extended its strike for another two months to drive home their demand.
A cross section of students, on Monday, in Abuja, said they were tired of staying at home.
Lius Imah, a Political Science student at the University of Abuja, said he had decided to learn tailoring believing that it would be useful to him in future.
Imah said that from every indication, the ASUU strike might likely take longer than necessary as both parties appeared not to be interested in making compromises.
“Since we cannot tell when the strike would be suspended, I will advise other students not to just sit at home doing nothing, but engage themselves in activities that would benefit them in future.
“There are many skills that one can choose from, ranging from fashion design, make-up, shoes making, baking and many more.
“Do not just sit idle at home, engage yourself with something meaningful,’’ he said.
Miss victoria Eku, a phone merchant and a student of the University of Abuja, said vocational skills would continue to grow as millions of students opt for it, to create a wealth of financial opportunities.
