    According to the Nigerian Sex Workers Association, the strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, will increase prostitution among female students.

    The national coordinator of the association, Amaka Enemo, said even without the strike, many female students had been engaging in ‘runs’, which entails them offering sex for cash or other valuables.

    She said "with the strike, just like a holiday, the rate of sex work will double.

    “In this job, strike or holiday period is like a peak period. So, I urge them to stay safe because we cannot kick them off the streets. They should be safe and use condoms.

    “The government needs to ensure that the strike is called off because if the students are left idle due to the closure of schools, it means the government is indirectly telling them to go to the streets.”
