ONE WEEK INTO THE ASUU STRIKE - MY OPINION

A lot has been said by those sitting up in the food chain about the current indefinite nationwide ASUU strike.

As at last week, all we heard from the Federal government were words of hope, ''ASUU MIGHT CALL OF THE STRIKE ON MONDAY 22 AUGUST''

It is clear that the strike is still on despite the meeting that was held yesterday and the consideration of the offer made by the Federal government on Thursday last week. I am not a pessimist, but at this point I can say it is only safe to keep your hopes down.

Just yesterday I was speaking with someone and he mentioned how outrageous the ASUU demands are and how impossible it is for the FG to grant it in a short period if at all it could be granted. ''They just want a share of the national cake'', he said.

My advice to you all waiting on the strike to be called off, GET BUSY 😄😅
Run an internship program, get a temporary job, start a project, volunteer for a project or as my Twitter peeps will say, learn a trade.
Yesterday I saw something on KraksTV that cracked the joy open!  The video is summarized into the fact that this strike might be the longest of the srikes.

My dear readers, it  just occurred to me recently that it makes sense for employers to require experience from a fresh graduate. In case you have gotten a grasp of the issue, this period is the time to gather the experience, gather it. 

Make hay while the sun shines.
