  • “Students Are Not Being Punishment But Paying The Price For Good Educational System” – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) through her President as stated that the ongoing strike isn’t a punishment to student but the price and sacrifice they are making to give Nigeria a good educational system.

The ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke who made this statement while sympathizing with students over long Asuu Strike.

He also added that the 34billion naira Federal Government intends sharing amongst them, Polytechnics and College of Education isn’t part of their demands, so therefore won’t put an end to their ongoing strike.

“ASUU sympathises with them, and we believe that with what is going on, if we continue with the struggle, we will have an education system where Nigerian students will have the same lecture rooms with their foreign counterparts,” Osodeke said.
