ASUU Strike Update Today
Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, on Tuesday slammed Nigerian politicians over the continued strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Musa criticised the politicians on his verified Instagram page and asked how they feel when they travelled abroad to visit their children’s schools, while Nigerian students are abandoned and neglected at home.
The ASUU strike has entered its fifth month, with resumption not in sight as the lecturers are yet to change demands to the Federal Government.
On Monday, during his visit to Daura, Katsina State, for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, President Muhammadu Buhari bemoaned the strike action, urging ASUU to end it.
Furthermore, Musa, a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) winner, took a swipe at youths who sing praises of Nigerian politicians despite being kept at home since February due to the strike.
“To our political office holders whose children school abroad. How do you feel visiting your children abroad, taking pictures in their schools and posting it online while ASUU is on strike?
“Like seriously, how is it okay to you? You are running a system you don’t even believe in.
“Show me one oyibo leader whose child is schooling in Nigeria. E no dey touch una?
“And when you return Nigerian youths will still gather and sing praises for una,” Musa wrote.
