I don’t know what else to believe when it comes to the Federal Government (F.G) and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). It seems they are so confused that they forgot everything they say half hour ago. If you recur, we gave a report that the Federal Government (President GoodLuck Jonathan) had assured the Nigerian Students that they will resume school this week, with or without ASUU. read it here: Breaking News: Nigeria Universities To Open Next Week, With Or Without ASUU
According to the report, the F.G said, if the Union refused what they have to say or offered come today 4th of November, 2013 after the meeting, they have Plan B (I still love that sound ‘Plan B’) what plan B, if i may ask anyway? well, they(FG) will have no other option than to force the Lecturer to return to classroom? (is this the plan ‘B’ FG? you guys must be dumb!) And then, a few days later, we were told this is all rumour? Latest on ASUU: November 4th meeting with President Goodluck is a rumour?
And all this is happening in less than 48 hours! Today we are told the meeting will still holds, and ASUU are already shaking like pumpkin leaf! They warned the F.G if they forced the re-opening of the Nigerian Varsities, it will only complicate the situation. For your information ASUU, the matter is already complicated! The Nigerian Students have been out of school for the past 4 months and you think it could get worse than these?
I advice ASUU and FG to break up. they are not fit to be husband and wife- they have what lawyers called “irreconcilable differences”
According to the Dictionary or Wikipedia it means:
The concept of irreconcilable differences provides possible grounds for divorce in a number of jurisdictions.
Any sort of difference between the two parties that either cannot or will not be changed can be considered irreconcilable differences. Some states use the terms irremediable breakdown, irretrievable breakdown, or incompatibility. In some states where the official grounds is irreconcilable differences, the statutory definition of that term may include a waiting period or a mutual-consent requirement.
Even ASUU has sworn not return to classroom unless FG meet their Demands.
ASUU vowed that it would not be intimidated into going back to the classroom, “unless our demands are met by the Federal Government
Please help save our Education System by applying for divorce, the youth are the Leaders of Tomorrow. (i still remember that song! ”the youth are the leader of tomorrow, parents pay our school fees, and give us good education… abi?) But it seems as if the FG and ASUU are bound to destroy our future.
Enough rambling already 😀 please read the official report below. Thank you.

ASUU Warns FG Against Forced Re-Opening Of Varsities Today
AS the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities enters the fourth month, the union has flayed alleged plans by the Federal Government to forcefully order the re-opening of the universities today, saying this will only complicate the situation.
PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan will meet the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday (today), apparently with a view to resolve the Federal Government-ASUU face-off that has left varsity gates shut since July 1.
But the union said it had got wind of Presidency’s plan to direct that universities be reopened, saying such directive without amicable resolution of the current strike would deepen the crisis.
Chairperson of the Uniport chapter of ASUU, Professor Anthonia Okerengwo, urged the Federal Government to toe the path of honour in its effort towards resolving the lingering strike.
His University of Benin counterpart, Dr Anthony Money-Emina, described as laughable, reports that President Goodluck Jonathan will order the union members to go back to work today.
Similarly, ASUU, University of Ibadan chapter, through its Secretary, Dr Ayodeji Omole, said such a report would further dent the image of the government as anti-democratic, cautioning President Jonathan to allow a sleeping dog lie by implementing the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement which the Federal Government had already signed.
ASUU vowed that it would not be intimidated into going back to the classroom, “unless our demands are met by the Federal Government.”
