Nigerian Universities end strike

Lecturers at more than 60 government-owned universities end six-month strike with government over finances.

    More than 60 government-owned universities in Nigeria have re-opened after being shut for nearly six months.

    They were closed over a pay dispute between the government and lecturers.

    The union representing the striking teachers says it was the only way to compel the government to pay the money.

    Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports on the impact of the strike from the University of Abuja.
