ASUU strike: Sen Sani backs decision, calls for state of emergency on tertiary institutions

Sen Shehu Sani
Following the
commencement of indefinite strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU) on Monday, outspoken Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has
backed the decision, calling on declaration of state of emergency on the
universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.
Shehu bared
his mind on his Facebook wall, stating that

only those who don’t see anything wrong
when leaders flash the images of their sibling’s matriculation or graduation
ceremonies in some of the world’s most prestigious or elitist universities”
would not see any wrong with the striking lecturers.

”First, I
wholeheartedly support ASUU strike. Second, I call on the Executive to dialogue
and meet up the demands of the Union.
“Third, the
need to declare an emergency on the state of public universities, polytechnics
and colleges of education is now.
“If you
don’t see anything wrong when leaders flash the images of their sibling’s
matriculation or graduation ceremonies in some of the world’s most prestigious
or elitist universities, you shouldn’t see anything wrong with ASUU strike and
demand for a better deal for Nigerian Universities.
“Giving some
children the best of education and denying some children same is aimed at entrenching
and sustaining a political, social and economic dynasty of class order.
 “Those whose children are in Oxford should
think about those whose children are in Oyo; Those whose children are in Yale
should think about those whose children are in Yola and Yaba;
“Those whose
children are in Cambridge should think about those whose children are in
Kaduna; those whose children are in Arkansas should think about those whose
children are in Akoka;
“Those whose
children are in Princeton should think about those whose children are in Port
Harcourt. Those whose children are in Eaton should think about those whose
children are in Enugu,” Senator Sani said in his thought provoking post.
