A mild drama ensued on Saturday morning as the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) rejected Berekete Family radio’s intervention to end the ongoing strike by the union.
This is as popular radio presenter, Ahmad Isah, popularly known as Ordinary President, hosted the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, and his team, to speak to Nigerians, most especially varsity students, why the strike still lingers.
Isah who had set up a bank account with TAJ Bank, to raise money for the union with the view of using the sum to convince ASUU to end the ongoing strike, displayed a sum of N50million cash donated by Gov. Udom Emmanuel of Akwa-Ibom state.
The whole saga seemed not to go down well with the ASUU president as he frowned at it saying the union should not be associated with such.
Many Nigerian students who called into the show expressed dissatisfaction with the union, describing them as “insensitive”.
Isah who didn’t find the outcome at all threatened to discontinue with the intervention.
