Socio-political activist, Deji Adeyanju has backed the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to continue its ongoing strike.
Recall that the National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, had said the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union is set to meet next week Monday to deliberate on some issues.
He said the union’s NEC would meet and consider the offers by the Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government for it to end its ongoing strike.
Osodeke, however, said his union was yet to get any offer from the Buhari government officially.
Recall that ASUU, who had been on strike since February 14, had three weeks ago extended it for another four weeks that would terminate next Monday.
Taking to his Twitter page on Monday, Adeyanju supported the union to continue the industrial action and asked the lecturers to resist the bullying and tyranny of the federal government.
He said if the country’s educational system was working, many Nigerians will not be paying millions in private universities nor will politicians’ children be going abroad.
He wrote: “ASUU has my 100% support to continue the strike. They should resist the bullying and tyranny of the Govt. If our educational system was working, many of us will not be paying millions in private universities neither will politicians’ kids be going abroad. ALUTA CONTINUA!”
