ASUU: Universities Faced With Massive Resignation Of Lecturers

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is currently plagued with a mass resignation of its members across various campuses in the country.

According to reports from Punch Newspaper, most of these lecturers have been forced to

explore new fields in a bid to survive through these times; resorting to taking other jobs in farming and other fields and others resorted to traveling abroad in hopes of greener pastures.

Speaking to the Punch Newspaper on Sunday, August 21st, the chairman of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, confirmed this development, saying that it was true that some lecturers have now quit their jobs in various public universities across the federation.

He said; “So many lecturers are leaving to engage in farming and others; lecturers are tired of the treatment they’re receiving from the government and because of this, they are looking for alternatives. So many more will leave even after the strike too.”

“I pity the country; Nigeria will be the loser for it. Instead of coming to the table; look at how they will solve the issue, rather, they believe in punishing lecturers. It’s so sad. Your lecturers went on strike, you believe they will become hungry and come back to beg. Many lecturers will also leave to venture into other areas; some are also looking at becoming self-employed.”
