The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kaduna State University chapter has joined the nation-wide warning strike embarked upon by the national body of the union in solidarity with lecturers’ union’s cause.
ASUU is calling on the government to implement the reviewed pay package and vowed to vote out politicians in 2011 general elections if they were bent on playing lip service to the development of education in the country.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna, the State chapter chairman of ASUU, Benjamin Gugong, said those politicians could be fished out during election time because, “they are not from the moon,” even as he said the Kaduna State chapter was joining the warning strike out of solidarity since the state government had so far implemented their demands.
” So our union is of the strong opinion that all those whose children are not schooling in this country should not be voted for because when they get on board, they would not advance the casue of the education in this country.
“It is very easy to know them, they don’t come from the moon”, they come from the society where we come from, and you will always find somebody from that community where they are coming from. They come from our community, they are from within us.
“Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Kaduna State University chapter held an emergency meeting yesterday. The reason for the emergency meeting is for our local branch to comply with the directive of the national executive council meeting that was held sometime back. We should go on three days warning strike in solidarity with our sister State universities in other States.
“We in Kaduna State university decided to join this strike not because we have a problem with our management or with the government of Kaduna state, but because it has become mandatory for us as an arm of ASUU to comply with the directive of the national body.
