ASUU Charges Students, Youths Hours To General Elections




2023: Don't Vote For Politicians Whose Children Are Schooling Abroad - ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has charged electorates against voting for “thieving politicians”.

The union in a statement on Friday urged voters, particularly youths, to scrutinize the various candidates before casting their votes.

In a statement issued on Friday by its National President, Emmanuel Osodeke, the union declared that “it is time Nigerians reorganised the political and socio-economic equations of the country for the benefit of the generality of its people”.

On the naira policy by the apex bank, ASUU lamented that business has become nightmarish to a majority of “hapless and helpless Nigerians”, stating that the policy was ill-conceived.

“On a daily basis, ordinary citizens are confronted with a gruesome sense of abandonment by the federal, state and local authorities whose primary responsibilities are the security and welfare of the citizens.

“Poverty, hunger, diseases and sundry existential challenges have become daily companions of the citizenry. Meanwhile, political elites carry on as if they have lost every idea about organising and running a decent society for the benefit of all.

“The country, no doubt, is in dire need of focused leadership that will restore order and inject life into a nation desperately gasping for breath.

“This is why ASUU calls on Nigerians to carefully weigh the profiles and antecedents of those that have been thrown up by various political parties before casting their votes,” the statement added.
