Following the decision at its meeting in Ilorin, Kwara State at the weekend to continue with their strike, a cross-section of Nigerians have condemned members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Nigerians, who took to Twitter to react to the extension of the strike which began on February 14th, 2022 after the federal government failed to meet some of its demands, majorly turned against the union, calling for the sack of the unwilling members.
Below are some comments:

@Israell1942, “Asuu is such a useless union that even under Obi they’ll go on strike. They’ve gone on strike under every administration. Everybody knows ASUU is the one and only problem.
@vixsonics, “The thing that is hurting the feelings of these ASUU people is that, they are not going to receive free 6 Months of Salaries for the time they were on Strike.
@Dambatta_1, “They should keep extending it while the country’s future keeps staying at home. The solution is for FG to proscribe the organization, sack all of them and employ those that are ready to work. If not for ASUU, many students would’ve been graduates by now.”
@Homodayor, “It seems our leaders don’t value education due to the manner in which the strike is being handled by the Ministers of education and labour while Fmr pre. Obasanjo said he went to Minna to discuss the national agenda. Does it mean education is not vital? The strike has been going on four more than 6months.
@miracle_emedo, “Pls how is Asuu the problem …you know ASUU can start and run the school like a gov sec school where u come to school and never see your lecturer cause they might start a side Business to meet up with this messed up economy if this govt did their job would ASUU be on strike?
