Just like you, I have heard a lot about ASUU Strike been called off soon…but so far, almost of them are empty promises, just some days ago, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, GoodLuck Jonathan met with the ASUU Members and they where in door for more than 13 hours debating on the Fate of their children, and we were told that come what may, the lingering 2013 Asuu Strike will be called-off very soon. (How soon, we do not know). We even heard the Federal Government have ‘Plan B’ to ‘force’ the re-opening of all Public Universities if the Academic Staff Union of Universities disagree with their terms.
We are done with the lies, we only want to hear that the Strike is called-off, we don’t care how they settle it in the backend. (although what they agreed on determine if the strike will be called of totally or not) The Nigerian Students only want to return back to school. How can the giant of Africa keep their students at home for 4 months? The youth as we were told are the Future of tomorrow? Who even gave Nigeria the title in the first place?
Next week Monday, 11th November, 2013, the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU), will hold a referendum, where the lecturers will discuss the outcome of this week’s meeting with President Jonathan. (Remember, the ASUU members met to determine if the strike will be called off or not. Since they want to meet again with Mr President, it simply means they do not agree with the terms of the F.G)
And according to dailypost.com.ng the Union will meeting again tomorrow, Monday to decided whether or not the 4-month old strike will continue. according the report, Invitation has been sent out to all the local chapters of ASUU to attend the meeting so that they can be part of reaching important conclusions.
It will be the first time the lecturers will meet, after the 13-hour long meeting they held with the president and observers are optimistic that the strike will be called off soon. (How soon? we will find out tomorrow).
Please Pray for Nigeria.
