ASUU president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, has urged Nigerians, especially students who have been plagued by the closure of schools due to the ongoing industrial action, not to vote for politicians whose children are studying outside the country in the upcoming general elections.
Osodeke made this known on Wednesday, August 17, while he was speaking on a Twitter Space Webinar, organized by a Nigerian news outlet, Premium Times, tagged, “ASUU strike, Revitalisation Fund and the Way Forward.”
When asked how the incessant industrial actions can be stopped, he said students should not vote for politicians who would not represent their interests when elected.
“Anybody you believe cannot take care of your interests, whose children are busy studying abroad, who are living abroad, don’t vote for them, I repeat, you don’t need to vote for them, because you don’t vote for people who will take your life.”
