Students Insult ASUU Over Fruitless Meetings, Strikes

Some students on Twitter have been reacting negatively towards the regular meetings between the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and the Federal Government of Nigeria.

A few hours ago, the union tweeted that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator ChrisNgige, has scheduled to meet with the leadership of ASUU today, Tuesday, in his office, to discuss the way forward regarding the ongoing strike.

Students’ Reactions

This meeting, which most persons already know the outcome, triggered several reactions, and @Fanka_Maurice directed his comment to the union, saying, ‘We are tired of this strike the #FGN should sort things out with #ASUU. Enough of this madness. A 4-years will soon be a 6-year course. We are tired of staying at home.

@Arebinne said, ‘ASUU please, it is time for you to include all the private universities in the country in your academic union so that whenever there’s any strike, both the public and private schools will be affected and not only the public ones because all the so-called big men children are all in private.

@MunkailaDalhat replied to the previous tweet, saying, ‘You’re right my Brother. I think the reason why ASUU couldn’t include private universities is that their children are into private universities too. Even primary school teachers don’t take their children to public primary schools.

Meanwhile, @issa_rahmat said it is time for you to listen to FG, please. We are tired 😪 and confuse, some of them do not even know if they should continue or drop out of school. Did you know this thing called strike has affected students beyond what you can imagine? You guys should implement another method other than striking.

Also, @b_gapchiya noted that the union is wrong, adding that their action also destabilizes our life plans as many miss NYSC Mobilization due to the age limit.

@DUwandulu said, ‘You guys should better resolve all these Nigeria strike oooo because las las we are the ones suffering, our rent is counting, age, and lots more…’
