  1. Nice write up dear. For me to rebuild our education, we must go bach to the basics. Emphasis should be placed on primary education.This among other things is owing to the fact that whatever one learns at that stage of development, He or she grows with it. I have said this repeatedly on my blog and I believe that is the way to go. God bless Nigeria!

  2. Am very disappointed at the Media’s Total blackout on the issue of ASUP Strike since the Begining of this Strike today is its the 39th day, and yet the Media have decided not to Air it or bring it out as a National Headline in our Dailies and i could remember when ASUU was on strike it was a day to day headline and always shown on air, seems we are on a “FIRE WITHOUT SMOKE MISSION” Its very alarming that up till now the federal government have not said or done anything as regards to this Strike……which have already disorganised our academic calender.How can the ASUP go on a Strike with people who are less concerned of our welfare. If the Media made this issue a day to day Headline the federal government would have at least shown some concern. The Media Disappointing us.

  3. you are right edward. Our media are never focused on priority values other than to publish what does not add value to human. Let’s shout it ourselves to FG if our unsupportive media cannot help. Thanks

  4. It is a pity that the asup strike has not given FG enough reason to be sensitive to the demands of ASUP which are expected to developmental increase polytechnic institutions, across the nigerian state, academically, technologically. FG please look into our plights, we are home-sick!

  5. The federal Government’s total negletion over ASUP strike has clearly shown that with due respect, we hv illiterate leaderz who dosn’t knw what’s best for the country they Governed. Am ashamed of them. They’ve made me home sick

  6. If only they have their children in polythecnics, they wouldn’t just go on an indefinite strike without enough persuation. Now jamb has realesed the cut-off mark 4 poly admissions, how on earth can students be admitted wen al d federal poly are on strike..2 worsen it al our supposed spokesperson(d nans president is no more), d media are nt helping in any way neither are d so called asup officials making an tangible move in favour of d students, al they re fighting 4 is how 2 enlarge there pockets everyday nt mindin d kind of troubles they re getting students into. God of Nigerian polythecnic students, our help is ur hands..
