Rejoinder Over A Write-up By Tunde Salihu Castigating ASUU Due To Strike

-Abdullahi Junaidu

I accidentally met a write up circulating media castigating ASUU over the incessant strike asking them to manage the situation of no fund in the country and forfeit their demands as nothing is going properly in Nigeria, my rejoinder will be against only that point for now !

Let me call his attention, in Nigeria it is only poor masses are asked to manage the situation under the pretext of no fund but the top elites in govt position are always earmarking huge amount of money for their frivilous and greedy sentiment, he didn’t ask senators or any member of National assembly to forfeit their allowances and sacrifice some percentage of their salary for managing the life of Nigerians.

Between these greedy & incompetent leaders and poor masses who deserve to forfeit their entitlement to manage the life of one another ? Everyday we are seeing looting everywhere and still govt is screaming of no fund, no fund for education but there is fund to loot. Govt top officials are enjoying their luxury lives with 100% amenities while that of masses are hijacked telling them to manage the situation of no fund.

We are seeing them distributing luxury cars and buying aspiration forms of millions.

Every year there is  Budget of renovating every office in villa and National assembly, even thier furnitures and decorations, allowances for servicing their vehicles and weekly newspaper which are all frivolous & greedy expenditure considering the country situation, huge amount of money are earmarked for these, if these money could be diverted to Education sector it would be a great achievement.

Education and these frivolous office renovation which one supposed to forfeit it’s own share ?

We have to think rational please.

Yes ! Strike is not the only option to solve this issue, students should also storm Abuja and block every road in a bid to pressure the govt to act urgently, this will surely yield better fruits as it is the only language Nigerian govt understands !

We still have some blockhead writers that have absurd audacity to support govt in trying to destroy education system by advising them to eliminate ASUU…

Be rest assured, if ASUU is dissolved today, education system will not last for decade, even if it does, poor people can no longer afford it as it will be very expensive and that is what Government want. So we have to wake up and do the necessary!
