Strike: Our members leaving Nigeria in large number – ASUU
Following the protracted industrial action, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reported that a significant portion of its members are leaving the nation to pursue their careers abroad.
At a press conference on Thursday at the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the union's national president, disclosed this.
He bemoaned the fact that the Federal Government decided to withhold the lecturers' salaries because they went on strike, claiming that such actions are unheard of anywhere in the world.
He said, “We don’t have a certain statistic, but a large number of our members have moved out of the country, not because they hate this country but because of the way they are being treated."
"There is no nation in the world where academics will strike, and you believe that the best defense is to take their salary."
Recall that on February 14, ASUU shut down public universities due to the federal government's failure to carry out prior agreements the two parties had made.
