Worried by the hardship emanating from the naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated its position on the Saturday presidential election.
In a statement issued on Friday by the National President of the union, Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU declared that “it is time Nigerians reorganized the political and socio-economic equations of the country for the benefit of the generality of its people."
The union urged eligible voters to scrutinize the various candidates before casting their votes, stressing that a stop must be put to a situation where the resources belonging to citizens are concentrated in the hands of a few manipulative political elites.
On the naira policy by the apex bank, ASUU lamented that business has become nightmarish to a majority of “hapless and helpless Nigerians”, stating that the policy was ill-conceived
“On a daily basis, ordinary citizens are confronted with a gruesome sense of abandonment by the federal, state, and local authorities, whose primary responsibilities are the security and welfare of the citizens."
“Poverty, hunger, diseases, and various existential challenges have become daily companions of the citizenry." Meanwhile, political elites carry on as if they have lost every idea about organizing and running a decent society for the benefit of all.
“The country, no doubt, is in dire need of focused leadership that will restore order and inject life into a nation desperately gasping for breath."
“This is why ASUU calls on Nigerians to carefully weigh the profiles and antecedents of those that have been thrown up by various political parties before casting their votes," the statement added.
