Lagos - Twitter has blown up with students, lecturers and other citizens commenting about President Goodluck Jonathan’s ultimatum that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has a week to call off their strike or they will lose their jobs.
Most were very sceptic over the question if the President's ultimatum will lead to the end of the strike.
@rhemmymatician: What happens when ASUU members get sacked after December 5? A recruitment drive?
Many Twitter users questioned the awkward timing of the ending of the strike as it coincides with the Christmas holidays.
?@FashalDiamond: What shall it profit ASUU to call off the strike when Christmas is just around the corner?
As the war between the Federal Government and the ASUU reaches fever pitch, citizens have chosen sides in the battle:
@Eksu_olofofo: To be honest I really don't blame #ASUU but #NUC for nothing doing their work positivity cos accreditation of bad infrastructure is a crime
@iamhaqq: Asuu to resume before december 4th...or cease being lecturers......#now I see jonathan using his powers to do something
@Chido92: #Asuu has overwelcomed their stay,i support #FG on the ultimatum
@alee_moh: U want to sack seasoned professors & phd holders...who wil now teach? Alangba? Or d "new" half baked teachers? Nonsense! #FG #ASUU
What do you think about this development? Will it be back to school for lecturers and students alike? Or will the strike drag on? Sound off below by commenting your thoughts.
