A Nigerian activist and presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore, has advised students affected by the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ strike to demonstrate their dissatisfaction through a “mass action.”
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.
