Recently, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), announced that it was commencing a 2-week warning strike. However, what many people did not expect was that the University of Ilorin will be part of the strike.
According to Vanguard, ASUU strike has never delayed or stalled UNILORIN exams for the past 20 years; unlike most public universities across Nigeria.
Due to that, several people have been sharing memes to make funny the not so funny developments.
Meanwhile, Vanguard quoted a student as saying, “It’s unfortunate, that what made UNILORIN special had been compromised,”
A senior lecturer at the institution, Professor Ajao sounded the seriousness of the warning strike by warning lecturers against conducting exams.
“The strike is total in the University of Ilorin, we are joining the strike and our members are excited because nobody has the right to take our salary for granted. “Nothing lasts forever, we are in a new dawn, whatever has a beginning must have an end. It is an irony of life that I will lead strike in UNILORIN after 20 years, and I have no regret about that,” he stated.
Here are the ways several Nigerians reacted to the strike
