ASUU Delivers Important Message to Nigerians

The Academic Staff Union of Universities encouraged Nigerians to vote against "thieving politicians" on Friday.

This was said by the association's National President, Emmanuel Osodeke, in a statement.

According to ASUU, "it is time Nigerians reshaped the political and socio-economic equations of the country for the advantage of the mass of its people".

Mr. Osodeke claimed that it was time for the nation to elect a leader who would put the people first in everything, and that it was time to put an end to a scenario in which citizens' resources were concentrated in the hands of a few manipulative political elites.

"On a daily basis, regular folks are presented with a horrible sense of abandonment by the federal, state, and municipal authorities whose major responsibilities are the security and wellbeing of the inhabitants," he remarked in response to the naira crisis.

"Poverty, hunger, sickness and other existential concerns have become daily companions of the populace. However, political elites continue to act as if they have no concept of organizing and governing a decent society for the benefit of all.

"The country, no question, is in critical need of focused leadership that can restore order and infuse vitality into a nation sorely gasping for air.

"This is why ASUU urges Nigerians to carefully consider the profiles and antecedents of people proposed by various political parties before casting their ballots," the statement said.
