After the drama that occurred live on the Brekete family program today, between the ASUU President and the Ordinary President to resolve the Asuu strike.

The public had called on the Ordinary President to please not let anger or some people’s reaction control his decision to be a philanthropist/voice of the voiceless, and further urge him to calm down and think about his decision to suspend and refunding back the funds that have been gathered so far for the ASUU Intervention.

The ASUU President on the other hand clarified that the ordinary president misinterpreted him, that all he was trying to debunk was that the money iisn’tgave to them, and ASUU as a body has not been consulted b4 attaching their name to the intervention.

He further stressed that he feared blackmail from the media and tow fake news could be spread like fire; where the public or media might tag ASUU as the ones in possession of the money been raised by the recent family.

Prof. Osodeke also reaffirmed that there has been tremendous progress so far on their secret meetings with the Briggs’ Committee and awaiting the 3rd test of UTAS/IPPIS to be available anytime soon from NITDA, under the Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy and that ASUU will move to call off strike if the Federal Government deploys UTAS.

The Ordinary President thanked all those that contributed to the program and assured them that he would look into the matter with his colleagues and then decide on whether to continue with the fundraising or suspend it and refund everyone on Monday or Tuesday, but as it stands, the fundraising is currently suspended.

The news on the rejection of the money raised by the Berekete Family to fund ASUU and stop the ASUU strike reads like this from the cable news.

Emmanuel Osodeke, president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has turned down an intervention fund by Brekete Family, a reality television and radio program focusing on human rights issues, to end the strike.

ASUU had on February 14 declared a one-month warning strike to protest the non-implementation of its demands by the federal government.

But on March 14, the union extended the action by eight weeks, citing the government’s failure to fully address its demands.
