ASUU Strike: Nigerian writes Open Letter to President Buhari
By Sir. Kuli Kuli
Your Excellency sir,
This is a short message that represent the opinion of at least 52Million Nigerian Youths who were utmostly disappointed by your intentional silence on ASUU Strike.
-Nobody ever imagined that the PMB of 2015 will carelessly treat ASUU Strike for over 9weeks in 2018. All of us are disappointed on your negotiating team!.
-Millions of Nigerians are only keeping quite on so many of your “administrative hiccups” simply because you are BABA BUHARI; if it was Jonathan, the whole story would have been different, WHY!?
-I nearly died as an Electoral officer in 2015, trying to protect your votes, i was one of the people who mobilized thousands of youths and heavy money for you, 24/7 on social Media and now we must tell you a patriotic truth!.
-You just allowed some “petty officials” to treat “Public Education” as lesser priority and continue to play with the intelligence of ASUU & Students’ future; don’t push us to the wall.
-98.9% of Nigerian Students are “Certified children of Nobodies” not children of any of your Governors, Ministers, Ambassadors or even labourers in Aso Rock.
-None of Nigeria’s Presidents, VP’s, Governors or anybody in your circle ever attended any school other than Public institutions. Can’t you sacrifice N1TRILLION to reach a consensual compromise with ASUU?.
-Even if there is no money to give ASUU, please borrow from those recovered looted billions in EFCC and ICPC, or simply use the 3-Months Salaries of all your Ministers to save our future!.
-All of your generation enjoyed free education (Primary to tertiary), full of benefits with enough allowances, free accommodation, free food (balanced diet) and never witnessed any kind of careless strikes.
President Muhmmadu Buhari
-Yusuf and Zarah graduated from Surrey UK, NUC Chairman son went to University of Aberdeen-UK; and infact all of us knows that the “rich kids” doesn’t study in Nigeria, we never complained, yet you don’t want to act fast?.
-Education, Health & Security are the sacrosanct priority of every serious government, don’t make us to start serious “fasting and Al-Qunut”.
-Your Minister of Education is a”Journalist”, Minister of Labour & Employment is a “Medical doctor” how then do you expect efficiency on Education?.
-You devalued the Naira with no cogent explanation, yet Nigerians kept quite, simply because Nigerians still zoomed you as the Baba Buhari of the 2015 change Mantra!
-You watch, folded your hands and kept mute how dollar skyrocket to N360, yet Nigerians kept quite, simply because we are still ashamed to criticized what we appraised.
-Systematic Subsidy was stylishly facilitated, Petrol price jump up to N145, when i remebered how in 2012 we nearly killed ourselves on protest against Jonathan!
-Now, that we needed you the most, you allow the likes of Babalakin, Adamu Adamu and Chris Ngige to be wasting ASUU time without shame, trying to destroy the future of Nigerian Students.
-Don’t force Nigerian Students to resolve to the “Malcomian & Marxian alternatives”. We are the nearest future of Nigeria, not those “Euro-groomed Children” of our politicians.
-I write this with strict objective mindset, without any political inclination, hoping you will realized that there are Nigerians that will tell you truth without politics.
-NOW, Nigerian Students should stop killing ourselves, let us not allow this strike to be politicized like any matter!. Weather ASUU & FG have any political benefits, we must not care, but our future.
-We hope & pray that you will consider this communique as urgently important. Please accept our patriotic regard.
-Sir. Kuli Kuli.
