As i did report earlier today, that the ASUU protests has finally hit Ile-Ife, Calabar, Osogbo, Ibadan.
Not withstanding, even from seminar halls and boardrooms where talks seem to have collapsed, university teachers have moved their battle for better education to the streets, since it seems that civilization can’t bring a stop to ASUU STRIKE.
Although the Nigeria police force are stopping them from holding rallies and marches to convince the public that their four-month old action is right.
In Calabar, the Calabar police yesterday did stopped a planned protest by lecturers of the University of Calabar (UNICAL) and the Cross River State University of Technology (crutech).
However, the Police could not stop the lecturers from addressing a rally on the UNICAL campus.
The University of Ibadan (UI) lecturers had a town hall meeting to sensitise the people to ASUU strike.
While in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Obafemi Awolowo University lecturers marched on the streets, getting to the palace of the Ooni of Ife.
The OAU lecturers also urged King to pravail on the government to implement the 2009 agreement it signed with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), without which the strike would continue.
Although President Goodluck Jonathan said during last month’s Presidential Chat that the government cannot fully implement the agreement, especially the financial aspect, because doing so would force a shutdown of other departments in the country.
But ASUU’s management board are saying that if the federal government remains adamant, that this current asuu strike might last for 5 years. (God forbids!)
