Published

on

A socio-political activist, Omoyele Sowore, on Monday asked Nigerian students to ‘teach the country’s leaders who are playing Russian roulette with their future, a big lesson’.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) earlier today rolled over its ongoing strike for another 12 weeks.

A statement signed by ASUU president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, said this was to give the federal government enough time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.

It also stated that the roll-over strike was effective from 12.01 am, May 9, 2021.

ASUU said it took this decision after its National Executive Council (NUC) meeting which started on Sunday night at the Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja (UNIABUJA).

Sowore, a presidential aspirant in the 2023 election on the platform of the African Action Congress (AAC), called for mass action until Nigerian universities are well-funded.

ASUU strike update

“Nigerian youths/students must teach these inhuman political rulers playing Russian roulette with their future a big lesson. Let the organising start now. Shut down everything with mass action, stop everything until our higher institutions are well-funded.

“They’re doing this because their kids don’t attend Nigerian universities!” Sowore wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
