ASUU Strike: I Haven’t Been To School Since I Got Admission, Rema Cries Out

Talented Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor better known as Rema has lamented his inability to resume lectures due to the ongoing strike action by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The music star had in January gained admission into the University of Lagos, a few weeks before the industrial action began.

In a post on Twitter on Monday, Rema appealed to the lecturers to call off the strike so he can begin his academic journey.

“ASUU, since dem give me admission I neva start school o, e don do nau!”, he tweeted.

ASUU had on Monday, February 14, 2022, announced a four-week total and comprehensive warning strike following the inability of the Federal Government to meet their demands.

Following the expiration of the initial four weeks of the warning strike, the union had gone ahead to declare another eight weeks saying that it was giving the government more time to attend to its needs.

Some of ASUU’s demands include the release of revitalization funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.
