They made me wash plates

A young Nigerian man has gone to church to celebrate the decision of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off strike.

The student did thanksgiving for being able to resume school after staying at home for eight months and being subjected to all types of domestic chores.

He said he is the happiest person in the church and the world because his school will be reopening on the 20th of October.

Narrating why he was happy that ASUU called off strike, he noted that his family usually make him wash plates at home despite being a comrade.

In a video circulating online, he gave glory to God and enjoined members of the church to praise the Lord with him.

Meanwhile, National President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, earlier said there are issues in its disputes with the Federal Government which were not well addressed.

The Academic body called off the strike on Friday, 14th of October, 2022

In a statement on Friday, Osodeke, also noted that the Minister of Labour, Employment and Productivity, Chris Ngige, took the striking lecturers to court.

The statement reads in part; “The National Executive Council of ASUU held an emergency meeting at the Comrade Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja, Abuja, on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

“The National Industrial Court, in its wisdom, gave an order compelling ASUU to resume work pending the determination of the substantive suit. Given the nature of the order, and in the opinion of our counsel, there was the need to appeal the interlocutory injunction granted against our union at the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal acknowledged the validity of the grounds of the union’s appeal but still upheld the order of the lower court and ordered our union to comply with the ruling of the lower court as condition precedent for the appeal to be heard.

While appreciating the commendable efforts of the leadership of the House of Representatives and other patriotic Nigerians who waded into the matter, NEC noted with regrets that the issues in dispute were yet to be satisfactorily addressed.”
