Abstract

The collateral effects of strike actions by academic staff in public universities in South West Nigeria were investigated through descriptive research design. An instrument tagged Perception of Undergraduates on the Influence of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Strike Actions Questionnaire (PUIASAQ) was used for data collection. A study sample of 490 undergraduates was selected through purposive and simple random sampling techniques from seven universities in South West geopolitical zone of Nigeria. Four research questions were raised with two hypotheses generated. The outcome of the study revealed both negative and positive impacts of ASUU strike on the undergraduates while gender of undergraduates and institutional ownership had no significant influence on undergraduates’ perception. It was recommended that causes of strike actions must be nipped in bud with granting of full autonomy to these universities while tax holidays should be given to private investors to finance universities.
