Hi, what are you looking for?



Some Nigerians on social media, Tuesday, expressed displeasure over the resumption of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila in a university in the United States of America amidst the lingering strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

A news report that academic activities in public universities in Nigeria have been shut down for close to 162 days.

ASUU had on February 14, 2022, announced the commencement of industrial action following the failure of the government to meet some lingering demands of the union.

Gbajabiamila had on Tuesday tweeted via his verified Twitter handle, @femigbaja that he had gone back to the Harvard Kennedy School.

Commenting on the development, a Twitter user @Santos tweeted, what is his take on the five months of the ASUU strike in Nigeria as the leader of the law-making arm of the Nigerian government and that the university students have been at home for five months.

The Twitter user asked the rep leader if showing Nigerians pictures of his Harvard lecture class is the best at this moment.

Another Twitter user, Halidu Adamu, tweeted the irony that Gbajabiamila is completely desensitized.

He added that tweeting about attending classes in a foreign university while Nigerian university students are at home.

He then urges ASUU to wake up and smell the coffee, that their action is not leading anywhere constructive.

According to reports under the tenure of Gbajabiamila as the speaker of the house of reps, ASUU embarked on strike for close to 12 months, nine months in 2020 and close to six months in 2022.
