|FG/ASUU Confrontation by Fortune02(m): 9:23am On Sep 30, 2013|
In any civilised and enlightened society, no government that bothers itself about public opinion will allow the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities to go on indefinitely. This is more so when the next general election is coming up in less than two years from now. Ordinarily, this strike is enough to bring down the ruling government in civilised clime, but that is not to be in Nigeria because the government, with all the instruments of office, is not counting on people’s vote, but on their own well designed, perfected and tested scheme. Whether we like it or not, the scheme has worked for them in Offa Local government election and heaven did not fall. The grand design will follow in the 2015 presidential election. After all, what can we the masses do? Nothing! It is sad.

I’m sure if an opinion poll is sought from across the country on the need to proscribe the Academic Staff Union of the Universities, the body can’t survive the next 48 hours. The inglorious strike embarked upon is uncalled for now that the Federal Government is trying to transform the entire country. If our graduates were being rated as second class abroad, is it ASUU’s obnoxious strikes that will help the students or that the members double their teaching/research efforts? ASUU’s actions tantamount to insubordination, rascality and greed against their employers. The Federal Government should proscribe ASUU now and those who refuse to go back to classes should be dismissed. There are thousands of other qualified people who could be engaged as lecturers all over the country.
