ASUU Strike: Students battle ASUU on Twitter over prolonged strike.


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Wednesday engaged students in an interactive session on Twitter asking them the trade they’ve learnt so far in the long break.

The Tweet which was posted on the official Twitter handle of the union @ASSUNGR says “Discussion Time. What trade have you learnt during this long break?”
Reacting to the question ASUU raised, some students have responded, criticizing the union for asking such a question.

Below are some reactions as seen on Twitter:

@ASUUNGR. You are using us to catch cruise while we are at home….wasting our lives and future and this nonsense is what you can come out to say…Its a Pity. No wonder you don’t want to accept the IPPIS system proposed by the FG”

@UshieClemente “Is really shambolic that this is coming from your tweeter handle, but when the minister for state advice you guys to go into farming, you all faulted the ideas stating that farming is not you guys portion, meanwhile in the university we have offering agriculture and co.”

@Blessedvic7 “Just imagine! Are you guys alright

@_Legitlayo “Omoooo, I almost thought it was a parody account… Are you seriously asking this question handler?? Trade? If I been wan learn trade, would I stress myself over certificate?? Which kain insensitivity be this? Weary faceWeary faceWeary face”

@thisisOluwakemi “Guys, this is ASUU official twitter account, not a parody. What’s going on in this country?”

@MusaAlhSule “What trade did you teach us? Abi should we use our certificates to wrap akara and Suya?”

You would recall that despite the closure of all tertiary institutions by the federal government due to COVID-19 outbreak in the country, ASUU embarked on a strike in March 2020 protesting the non-payment of its members salaries who failed to enrol into the federal government’s payroll system, mandated for all public officials.

The Federal government and ASUU had met severally to resolve the long-lasting strike but despite the meetings, no agreement has been reached yet.
