Following strike set out by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the association on Wednesday, asked understudies what they’ve realized so far in the long break.
The Tweet which was posted on the official Twitter handle of the union @ASSUNGR says “Discussion Time. What trade have you learnt during this long break?”
Recall that despite the closure of all tertiary institutions by the federal government due to COVID-19 outbreak in the country, ASUU declared an indefinite strike after the expiration of its two-weeks warning strike on Monday 23, May 2020,
The strike was embarked over the non-payment of salaries of ASUU members who failed to enrol into the federal government’s IPPIS, a payroll software mandated for all public officials.
The Union and Federal government had at different times met to resolve the long-lasting strike but despite the meetings, no agreement has been reached yet.
Reacting to the question ASUU raised on Wednesday, some students responded positively stating different skills and trade they’ve learnt so far while some criticised the union for asking such question which they see as a mockery.
Below are some reactions as seen on Twitter:
@Blessedvic7 “Just imagine! Are you guys alright @ASUUNGR. You are using us to catch cruise while we are at home….wasting our lives and future and this nonsense is what you can come out to say…Its a Pity. No wonder you don’t want to accept the IPPIS system proposed by the FG”
