Dear ASUU, If the Accountant General of the Federation can steal ₦80 billion, you have no reason to suspend the Strike - Reno Omokri advises ASUU
Reno Omokri has advised the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) not to suspend the ongoing nationwide strike until the Nigerian Government meets all demands of the striking lecturers, This is coming just a few hours after the EFCC Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested the Accountant General of the Federation for stealing ₦80 billion.
His tweet reads;
If the Accountant General of the Federation can steal ₦80 billion, you have no reason to end your strike. Ask Buhari to use the stolen ₦80 billion to pay you and keep the change. After all, the money ASUU is asking for is not even up to ₦80 billion!
