Super Eagles of Nigeria captain, Ahmed Musa, has expressed his displeasure over the five-month-old Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike that has crippled educational activities in Federal Government owned institutions.
The Turkey based footballer shared his thoughts via his official Instagram account. The reference to Nigerian political office holders visiting their children abroad and posting pictures online while ASUU is on strike may be connected to images of leaders who have been displaying such pictures, the latest being Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, shown with two other Governors, at his son’s graduation ceremony in London.
Ahmed Musa wrote “To our political office holders whose children school abroad. How do you feel visiting your children abroad, taking pictures in their schools and posting online while ASUU is on strike?”
“Like seriously, how is it ok to you? You’re running a system that you don’t even believe in. Show me one Oyibo (foreign) 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,” the 100+ cap Nigerian international concluded, apparently on a sad note.
In reaction to Musa’s post, Nigerian youths in their numbers shared comments applauding the footballer for adding his voice to what they described as a sad situation that has plagued the academic life of the masses who cannot afford overseas education.
