ASUU President Bashes Nigerian Politicians, Calls Them ‘Foreigners’ Not Bothered About Nigeria’s Problems

Osodeke said this on Wednesday while speaking during a Twitter Space organised by Premium Times to discuss the six-month strike embarked upon by the union.

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Emmanuel Osodeke, has bashed Nigerian politicians, describing most of them as foreigners as they and their families do not live in the country.

Osodeke said this on Wednesday while speaking during a Twitter Space organised by Premium Times to discuss the six-month strike embarked upon by the union.

He said most Nigerian politicians are not bothered about all the challenges facing the country because they are mostly not affected.

ASUU embarked on strike on February 14, 2022, over the Nigerian government’s failure to meet its demands, including university funding and issues around the payment system.

The ASUU president who earlier said the strike would not end anytime soon unless the government meets the union’s demands lamented the government’s “insensitivity” to the plights of Nigerians.

He said the challenges facing education and other sectors in the country have lingered because those in power are not directly affected.

He noted that most of the politicians have their families abroad where they have access to quality education and as such, are not bothered about the plight of Nigerians.

TheCable quoted Osodeke as saying, “With all due respect, most Nigerian politicians are foreigners, their families live abroad, study abroad; all they do is come here, spend a few days, pick as much money and go back to ‘their countries’ to go and enjoy the money.

“There is the issue of insecurity and all sorts of things are happening in this country, the politicians are not bothered  because they are not here.”
