Eagles’ Ahmed Musa slams politicians over ASUU strike

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has slammed Nigerian politicians over the continued strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Musa slammed the politicians on his Instagram handle on Tuesday and asked how they felt when they travelled abroad to visit their children’s schools, while Nigerian students were stuck at home.

SLEEKNEWS reports the ASUU strike has entered its fifth month, with resumption not in sight as the lecturers are yet to change demands to the Federal Government.

On Monday, during his visit to Daura, Katsina State, for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), bemoaned the strike action saying enough is enough for keeping students at home.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner, however, took a swipe at youths who sing praises of the politicians despite being away from their studies due to the strike.

“To our political office holders whose children school abroad. How do you feel visiting your children abroad, taking pictures in their schools and posting it online while ASUU is on strike?

“Like seriously, how is it okay to you? You are running a system you don’t even believe in.

“Show me one oyibo leader whose child is schooling in Nigeria. E no dey touch una?

“And when you return Nigerian youths will still gather and sing praises for una,” Musa wrote.
