Following the prolonged strike, the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has stated that a large number of its members are leaving the country to pursue careers abroad.
Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the union’s national president, made the announcement on Tuesday while fielding questions from journalists at Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

He bemoaned the Federal Government’s decision to seize the salaries of the striking lecturers because they went on strike, claiming that such a thing does not happen anywhere in the world.
“We don’t have a specific statistic, but a large number of our members have moved out of the country not because they dislike this country, but because of how they are treated,” he said.
“There is no country in the world where academics will go on strike, and you believe that seizing their salary is the best weapon.”
Remember that ASUU shut down public universities on February 14 due to the Federal Government’s failure to implement previous agreements reached by both parties.
He said no date has been fixed for the resumption of the Union.
