"I'm just hearing it right now. So I'm happy, it's good news. Because I have things to do, you know I'm doing photography and I'm trying to relax. School is taking up my time and obviously nobody is serious about school in this country including the government themselves. So, you know you just have to find something going on for yourself, something that works for you, and school is not it."

Nigerians on Twitter react

Other Nigerians have started reacting to the lady's views. A few of the reactions are captured below:

@Ex3mePheleep commented:

"With all the years you’ve spent in Nigerian university what did you gain?"

@gnxsis reacted:

"Find something that works for you! This right here is someone who's tired of the system and trying to just make the best of her time. Whether you agree with her or not y'all caught up in the same strike."

@Kolade remarked:

"Imagine what this one is saying. We plenty whey no serious for this country this girl na the deputy."

ASUU declares strike

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Academic Staff Union of Universities declared a warning strike. The body said the strike will last for one month.

This decision by ASUU's National Executive Council (NEC) came after a deadlocked meeting with delegates of the Ministry of Labour and Employment that ran into the early hours of Monday, February 14.

ASUU is bitter and angry that the federal government of Nigeria has failed to honour agreements reached with the body.
