ASUU blames FG for fuel scarcity, hardship
As fuel scarcity continues across the country, the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo state chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), yesterday expressed disappointment with manner the federal government was handling issues affecting masses of the country, including the fuel scarcity.
The union also expressed shock at the silence of some persons who were very vocal in condemning anti-masses policies of the previous administration.
Chairman of ASUU in the school, Monday Igbafen, stated this at the end of the chapter’s first Congress of 2018 held in Ekpoma. According to him, the already bad living condition of Nigerians was being compound by the biting fuel scarcity and called the government to do a self-appraisal with a view to making amends to salvage the deteriorating condition of Nigerians.
“Why is it that these same Nigerians have become silent when we are fueling our vehicles with N300/400 per liter? We feel this government should be indicted because we do not believe that government is not aware of what is going on. We felt Buhari represented change, but what we see today is abysmal failure”, he said.
He predicted that 2018 would be tougher, because according to him, the “oppressors” would be more hardened. “We foresee a tougher 2018 because the oppressors will get more hardened at all levels. The issue of our liberation should not be tied to any existing political party. It should be tied to our ideological belief”, he said.
