ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof Emmanuel Osodeke has said that members of the union will not take part in the upcoming general elections in 2023.

He said this reason for this is because there is massive corruption in the electoral system, maintaining that any member going to participate is doing so as a Nigerian and not as a member of ASUU.

Osodoke who made this statement in a recent interview with Vanguard also advised Nigerian students and their parents against voting for politicians whose children study abroad.

He said, “We have said that ASUU will not take part in elections, because before you start voting, the system is already corrupted. At the polling units, the system is corrupt. You tell us to say at the top to compile results, we won’t do that. So, anybody going to participate is going as a Nigerian and not as a member of ASUU, and when he is arrested, he should be treated as a Nigerian and not as ASUU”.

On choosing politicians to vote for, the ASUU President said, “Any day the students and parents take over this struggle, we will go back to class. To say the government we elected you, you’re using our funds. If you are going for election next year, ask them where their children are schooling; if they stay outside the country, don’t vote for them. They should insist that their children, who are abroad, are brought back home, and then we will go back to class.”
