ASUU vs Federal Government: The Fear of Strike and How Twitter is Reacting.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is trending at number one on Twitter this morning; and it has got everyone talking.

Most especially Federal University students.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU); is to challenge President Muhammadu Buhari on the recent directive he gave to the Accountant General of the Federation; to include university lecturers in the Integrated Payroll Personnel System (IPPS).

The National Auditor of the union, Comrade Christ Piwuna; made this known during a public lecture organized by the Bauchi State University; Gadau Branch of the union entitled ” University Autonomy and Ethical Reorientation.”

He lamented that inclusion of universities in the system violates the agreement reached between the federal government and the union; as the policy was against the law establishing universities and its amendment act.

According to him, ASUU was not totally against the policy; just that Governing Councils of Universities should be allowed to implement that for staff in their various institutions not the federal government.

Of course you know Twitter is reacting:

While some students are overjoyed at the thought of the union going on strike;

Some are literally dreading the thought of strike;

And all some others see is the imminent corruption present in the union;

Let’s hear what you think!
