Lecturers will leave Nigeria after strike – ASUU President

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, says a large number of lecturers are going to leave Nigeria when the strike is over.

Emmanuel Osodeke made this claim during an interview on a television programme on Wednesday.

Recall that on Wednesday, the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) in Abuja ordered the union to immediately suspend the ongoing industrial action.

Osodeke said no country think about the future of its youths would dare do what the federal government did to ASUU.

In his words, “When this strike is over, a large number of our lecturers are going to migrate from this country; when you are using force to push your lecturers to class. If you go to a hospital and the doctor said this work is not good do it well and the owner forced the man and now said you must go and treat this patient will you allow that doctor to treat you? The same thing with our lecturers.

“You know what you did? First of all they said if you owe them, you don’t pay them; they will come and beg us. Seven months it didn’t work; I am still alive. And now they went to court. They want to force them. It’s a catastrophe. No country thinking about the future of its children, thinking about the health of its educational system, who believe in education and whose children are in those universities will try that.”
