Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Comrade Sani Shehu has thrown its weight behind the strike action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Sani who said this is the time for the federal government to declare emergency on the state of public universities, polytechnic and colleges of education, called on executive to dialogue and meet up the demands of the union.

The Comrade Senator said “Giving some children the best of education and denying some children same is aimed at entrenching and sustaining a political, social and economic dynasty of class order.

According to Sani, If you don’t see anything wrong when leaders flash the images of their siblings matriculation or graduation ceremonies in some of the world’s most prestigious or elitist universities, you shouldn’t see anything wrong with ASUU strike and demand for a better deal for Nigerian Universities.

He stated this on Monday in series of tweets on his twitter handle @shehusani.

The tweets read:

“First, I wholeheartedly support ASUU strike. Secondly, I call on the executive to dialogue and meet up the demands of the Union.  Thirdly, the need to declare emergency on the state of public universities, polytechnic and colleges of education is now.

If you don’t see anything wrong when leaders flash the images of their Siblings matriculation or graduation ceremonies in some of the world’s most prestigious or elitist universities, you shouldn’t see anything wrong with ASUU strike and demand for a better deal for Nigerian Universities.

Sundiata Post recalls that Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has on Monday commenced an indefinite strike across the nation.

According to ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, the lecturers took the decision to declare the strike after deliberations at its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held at the University of Abuja during the weekend.

In a document titled: “Strike Bulletin No.1”, which was signed and issued by Ogunyemi, ASUU said the strike action will be total, comprehensive and an indefinite action whereby no form of academic activities including teaching, attendance of any meeting, conduct and supervision of any examination at any level, supervision of project or thesis at any level should take place at any of the nation’s universities.

The union had earlier embarked on a six month strike between July and December 2013 and the strike was suspended when government signed an MoU with the union.
