A 400L Computer Science Student with the Federal University Lokoja, FUL, Thomas Kehinde, says the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has turned him into an emergency newspaper vendor, in a bid to survive the harsh economic situation of the country.


Kehinde who spoke to Our Kogi State Correspondent earlier today, Wednesday December 9, insisted that both the academic body and the government are playing games with the lives and future of Nigerian youths.


The undergraduate, who is from Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State, said his parents feed from hand to mouth, just to see him through school.

According to him, his hopes of graduating from the University in his four years course in 2020, has been dashed by the tussle between the Federal Government and ASUU.

He explained that he decided to venture into newspaper vendoring, to avoid engaging in social vices.

"The last nine months have been a living hell for me. I thought I would be saying goodbye to the university by the end of 2020, but that hope has been shattered. Can you imagine, ASUU and the government are treating Nigerian Students as if we are not part of this country.

"You would recall that, most of the people that participated in the #EndSARS protests are students. This is because they were idle and are tired of staying at home. There are some students I strongly believe have been engaging in some social vices, such as armed robbery, kidnapping, cultism, money laundering and many more. This is because they are idle”.
