IT is longer news that ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022 despite all negotiations and pleas by notable men and women including First Class Monarchs in Nigeria. ASUU stood their grounds against the federal government.
The comments of Nigerians on Social Media and withdrawal of some university showed that Nigerians are getting bored and worried on the predicaments of Nigerian students.
Can’t ASUU change their tactics from stike actions to enable our students fulfill their goals in life while their negotiations continue with the federal government?
Below are few of the comments of Nigerian stakeholders on Twitter:
Dr Guandinzi (Anigilaje)
“There is no demand on ASUU’s list that should warrant an 8-month strike action. Nothing on earth and in heaven. If you are an ASUU member, I challenge you to list your demands or try to justify the strike action. It’s clearly egotistical and it’s not about the students.”
“The ASUU chairman has allowed his ego to consume him. The man is no longer fighting for the students or his colleagues. He is only out to make a political statement with his 8 months strike. The FG will not backtrack on IPPIS. ASUU doesn’t own our universities they are employees.”
“Their members are suffering seriously, wondering how they will survive without the 7months pay. Please @femigbaja help resolve this strike abeg.”
“No work, no pay. Simple. The seven months is gone, forfeited. They didn’t work.”
“You will just sit down behind keyboard and feel like typing anything you like, no work no pay , then government should go ahead and pay then their earned allowances now ,”
“Don’t judge what you don’t know, when you’re employed as a lecturer there are three things that comprises your job which is Lecturing, Research and Community development. So they stopped lecturing doesn’t mean they’re not doing research, in other words they are still working.”
