ASUU is our problem – Nigerians react as reopening of universities suffer another setback

PublishedBy: in Education, Nigeria NewsJanuary 12, 2021 -


Some on social media have criticised the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) for saying it may be unsafe to reopen universities due to the risks of COVID-19 infection.

The union claimed an assessment of COVID-19 protocols in the universities showed that the tertiary institutions were not ready for safe reopening even though lecturers are eager to start work.

However, the statement by has sparked huge criticisms from on Twitter.

Many citizens who reacted to the report questioned why the union would make such a statement when it just called off its nine-month strike.

One of such commentators is a user identified as Imported Alhaji Eagle who accused the lecturers themselves of flouting COVID-19 guidelines.

He said:

conducted a meeting of over 20 officials without social distancing, some people didn’t put on just to come out and declare it’s unsafe to open universities because of Covid. Honestly at this point nobody can convince me that is always fighting for students.”

A popular actor, Gabriel Afolayan, in his reaction said was acting as a stumbling block to Nigerian students.

He said:

“One Time call off strike for students to resume. Another time same said its not safe to resume because of covid 19.

“But our market places are always filled. I have always known there is a hidden agenda behind all this. Seems is Nigerian students problem.”

Another Nigerian with the username @MFaarees questioned why universities should be shut when gatherings were taking place in other places.

He said:

“Every kind of gathering is taking place in this country, but ASUU is telling us that it’s unsafe to open the universities now, if I tell you ASUU is the main problem you won’t agree, just look at what they’re doing, just trying to destroy the education system of the country. Sad!”
