Emmanuel Osodeke, the President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has tagged some state varsities as quacks.

Osodeke listed some universities that are not part of the ongoing strike as not members of the union.

Recall that ASUU had on February 14, 2022, declared strike over some disagreements with the Federal Government.  

The ASUU President had during an interview on Arise Television stated that all institutions under its umbrella are partaking in the industrial action.

He said, “Kwara State University is not a member of ASUU, they’ve not joined, you can check. Osun State University was suspended from ASUU for misbehaviour, you can check.

“In LASU that you mentioned, we are in court with LASU because they sacked all our executives more than five years ago, so they were not part of this struggle.

“Ekiti State University… ASUU doesn’t run a university, the government has a right to say we have reopened, our members have the right to say ‘that’s good for you, we are not teaching, we are on strike’ — as it happened in Gombe State University, as it happened in Yobe State University. You can go and check, as it happened in Kaduna State University. So don’t cite those examples, they are irrelevant.

“Talk about the issue; is Ibadan on strike? Is UNN on strike? Is ABU on strike? Is BUK on strike? Is Maiduguri on strike? Is Lagos on strike? Let us talk about the important ones, not those quacks.”
