Open letter to president Buhari on ASUU strike



By Sir Kuli Kuli

Your Excellency, Sir, this is a short message that represents the opinion of at least 52 million Nigerian youths who were dissappointed by your intentional silence on the ongoing ASUU Strike.

Nobody ever imagined that the PMB of 2015 would carelessly treat ASUU Strike for over 8 months in 2020. All of us are disappointed by your negotiating team!

Millions of Nigerians are only keeping quite on so many of your “adminiatrative hiccups”, simply because you are BABA BUHARI. If it was Jonathan, the whole story would have been different. WHY?!

I nearly died as an electoral officer in 2015, trying to protect your votes. I was one of the people who mobilized thousands of youths and resources for you, 24/7 on social Media. Therefore, now we must tell you the gospel truth!

You just allowed some “petty officials” to treat “public education” as lesser priority, and continue to play with the intelligence of ASUU and students’ future. Don’t push us to the wall.

98.9% of Nigerian students are “certified children of nobody”, not children of any of your governors, ministers, ambasssadors or even labourers in Aso Rock.

None of Nigeria’s presidents, VP’s, governors or anybody in your circle ever attended any school other than public institutions. Can’t you sacrifice N1 TRILLION to reach a compromise with ASUU?

Even if there is no money to give ASUU, please borrow from those recovered looted billions kept with EFCC and ICPC, or simply use the 3 months salaries of all your ministers to save our future!

All of your generation enjoyed free education (primary to tertiary), full of benefits with enough allowances, free accomodation, free food (balanced diet), and never witnessed any kind of careless strikes.

Your children, Yusuf and Zahra graduated from University of Surrey, England, while NUC Chairman’s son went to University of Aberdeen in Scotland!
