ASUU Strike: Gov. El-Rufai Threatens to Sack KASU Lecturers
By Collins Mbakwe
It’s no longer news that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have been on strike for over five months now owing to the failure of the Federal government to honour its agreement with the body. Ever since the strike began, Lecturers of the Kaduna State University have been with them.
This has however led to several reactions from the state government noting categorically that ASUU’s challenge is with the Federal government and that lecturers of the Kaduna State University have nothing to do with the ongoing strike. But despite all attempts by the government to get them back to the classroom according to Daily Post, they have remained defiant.
Barely 24 hours ago, El-Rufai speaking on a radio program in Kaduna told the lecturers to return back to their classrooms while threatening to declare their positions vacant if they fail to do so.
“If they continue with this, I will wake one day and sack every one of them, I swear to God. They once did the same thing and they were warned, but now they are repeating the same thing again. I swear to God, we will sack all those that joined the strike if they refuse to resume work”
