ASUU needs to reconsider

01 November 2013, 10:45 Julius Ngbede Philips


That is what I hear every day now. This issue never ceases and reactions are still dropping like rainfalls, am getting bored, has anyone reasoned the comprehensive demands of ASUU?

"Rome was not built in a day" the falling standard of education is not just about fund injection into the sector, the body recently issued a statement that they (ASUU) don't trust the government, if you are a student here are some questions for you.

Do you trust your lecturers? Are they dedicated to their duties? How well have your various institutions done with funds that they get directly from all of you students? How many of your lecturers come to lectures two to ten times in a semester?

The problem of ASUU was accumulated over period of decades, can it be solved over night? Government is insensitive! Correct how sensitive is ASUU each time, they use the students as scape goats in settling their grudges with the government, if ASUU is actually fighting for the students as they claim at least they have lost four months in the process, the fight have yielded a tleast some effort, why can't they suspend the strike at the mercy of the students?

For the students, I hope you all have started preparing your demands for the lecturers as well? Because as we all know it is not only about funds from the government but also about students-lecturers relationship.
