A presidential aspirant Omoyele Sowore has called on Nigerian students to hold massive protests following the decision of the Academic Staff Union of Universities to embark on another 12 week extended strike.
Recall that we reported that ASUU announced on Monday that its ongoing strike had been extended by 12 weeks.
A statement signed by ASUU’s president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, said the extension was to give the Federal Government enough time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
Reacting to the announcement on Monday, Sowore took to his Twitter page and urged public universities’ students to teach “inhuman” political rulers a “big lesson” by commencing a mass action.
“Nigerian youths/students must teach these inhuman political rulers playing Russian roulette with their future a BIG lesson.
“Let the organising start now, shut down everything with mass action, stop everything until our higher institutions are well funded #WeCantContinueLikeThis.
“They’re doing this because their kids don’t attend Nigerian universities! #Revolutionnow!,” he wrote.
