Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has called on Nigerian students to shun politicians who enrol their children in universities abroad.
Osodeke made the call during a Twitter Space Webinar, organised by Premium Times, tagged, ‘ASUU strike, Revitalisation Fund and the Way Forward.’
Proffering a lasting solution to the incessant strike by the union, Osodeke said students should not vote for politicians who would not stand on the side of the people.
He said, “Anybody you believe cannot take care of your interests, whose children are busy studying abroad, who are living abroad, don’t vote for them, I repeat, you don’t need to vote for them, because you don’t vote for people who will take your life.”
His comment was in response to a question from a popular EndSARS activist, Rinu Oduala, on what Nigerian students could do amid the lingering ASUU strike.
Recall that ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022, over a disagreement with the federal government. Students continue to wait at home for the resolution of the contending issues.
