We informed, lobbied Senate before we went on strike – ASUU lambasts Lawan

After a new chapter to the story erupted yesterday where it was made known by the senate president in the person of Ahmed lawan in regards to discussing issues about the strike to ASUU soon.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has now come out to counter such claims of his by noting that it duly informed, lobbied and appealed to the Senate before carrying out on its strike action.

They noted “It is inconceivable for a SenatePresident to see political activities as moreimportant than having students back to learn and develop the society”.

“The Union, ASUU, informed, lobbied and appealed to the Senate to avert the strike but they were not forthcoming”.

“We see a house loyal to the ruling political elites and not to Nigeria. To this set of politicians, anything can suffer but their access to the common treasury. That is a sign of irresponsibility. Have their own welfare issues not been taken care of?”.

“I salute the resolve of the Nigerian students to fight.for their own right. Education is a right and not a privilege. The youth, Nigerian students have an inalienable right be concerned and take actions they considered appropriate to secure their future. “ they noted.
