Thousands of Nigerian students remain stranded due to an ongoing feud between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which forced shut public universities in the country since February 14.
However, speculations emerged Thursday, that the daughter of the current Chairman of the union, Emmanuel Osodeke, recently graduated from the University of Chicago in the United States.
The speculation emanated from a Facebook post by one Ekiti Princess, who alleged that the ASUU Chairman’s 21-year-old daughter, Julianah Chidera Victor Osodeke, recently bagged a degree from the foreign university.
Her post read: “FELICITATIONS: On behalf of my two daughters who are part of the 5Million Nigeria University Students let me congratulate Miss (21) Julianah Chidera Osodeke the beautiful daughter of Comrade Dr Emmanuel Osodeke who recently graduated from The University of Chicago, Illinois US. We want to thank God and appreciate your daddy for his efforts at sending you to the United State for speedy completion of your course of study.
“We equally use this opportunity to thank your Dad for his efforts and ruggedness on the ongoing ASUU National strike especially for keeping us at home with our parents the last seven Months for obvious reasons(salary increase). We appreciate you Sir, may the Lord reward you accordingly”.
The post which was published at 8:16 pm Nigerian time has already been shared over 230 times and attracted several comments and impressions.
Many netizens, criticised Osodeke for shutting down public universities and plunging many students into a state of uncertainty about their future, while his daughter enjoyed uninterrupted education abroad.
