The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), yesterday, asked Nigerians to ensure that all political office holders having hand in the prolonged and continuous strike embarked upon by the union are voted out in the 2023 general elections.
It compelled undergraduates, who are affected by the lasting industrial action, to see their predicament as a sacrifice for their children and grandchildren.
The union declared that Nigerian political leaders lack feelings for average Nigerians and the nation’s education sector because their children and family school oversea.
President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, declared these after attending a special congress of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife chapter of ASUU held at First Bank Lecture Theatre.
Osodeke confessed the Federal Government was yet to respond to all the issues the union tabled before it, adding that the nation’s university education was fastly collapsing.
He said: “As of now, we can’t identify what has been achieved because the government has not responded to virtually all the issues that we have talked about but the essence of what we have done is that we have mobilized the Nigerian people to know that this present set of leaders has no feelings for the Nigerian people, students, and the country.
