ASUU, SSANU, ASUP AND COEASU STRIKE

Govt Must Meet Their Demands Now

WHY THE STRIKE?

The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) supports the strike action of staff unions in all State-owned tertiary institutions across the country. We call on the respective state governments, particularly the southeast governors, south-south governors, the Lagos State government, Ogun state government etc., to immediately meet the demands of the striking unions so that students who have been kept at home for an intolerably long period of time can resume.

Even the advanced capitalist countries, the principal beneficiaries of the iniquitous capitalist system foisted on Nigeria and on all other underdeveloped countries are openly expressing sentiments that the world would wish to see a more transparent and peaceful elections come 2011. In his first public media interactions, the new United States' Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Terence McCulley had summed up the imperialist countries' sentiment in this regard when he stated that: "I hope the process in 2011 will be better and will respect the will of the Nigerian people". We consequently posed the big question: Will the 2011 general elections in Nigeria be more "transparent" and "respect the will of the Nigerian people" any better than the farcical exercise called the 2007 general elections?
