The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, has condemned the comments made by Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi over its lingering strike.
Naija News recalls that Governor Umahi was reported to have condemned the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) for allegedly holding the government to ransom and said “University education is not for everybody and that is the truth.”
Osodeke while speaking on a Twitter Space organized by Premium Times, which was tagged ‘ASUU strike, Revitalization Fund, and the Way Forward’ said that it was unfair for the Governor to say such when his son graduated from a university abroad.
“Education is about life. A governor was saying education is not for everybody and then we saw his son graduating outside (abroad) with governors around. I will repeat it; the Nigerian students should hold their PVC.
“Anybody who will not look at their interests, who, in his campaign, will not show that he’s going to improve the Nigerian educational system, they should vote them out,” he said.

Osodeke further urged Nigerian students to vote for only politicians who would look out for their interests.
“Anybody you believe cannot take care of your interests, whose children are busy studying abroad, who are living abroad, don’t vote for them, I repeat, you don’t need to vote for them because you don’t vote for people who will take your life,” he said.
