Speaking to Punch Newspaper, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke the ASUU’s President said the government’s decision not to meet the union’s demands is hurting the nation.
“So many lecturers are leaving to engage in farming and others; lecturers are tired of the treatment they’re receiving from the government and because of this, they are looking for alternatives. So many more will leave even after the strike too”. jamb results
“I pity the country; Nigeria will be the loser for it. Instead of coming to the table; look at how they will solve the issue, rather, they believe in punishing lecturers. It’s so sad.
