Of IBBU-Union leaders and fate of her students

By: Umar Yunusa

The union leaders of the Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai, through weeks of battle against fees hike, has not shamed those rubbishing their efforts.

This is a game well planned by management and state governments. Their evil intention towards fees hikes troubles our parents and sponsors. Where do we have such an amount to pay?

The long battle of fees hike in IBB University has stolen students attention on the campus. Many claimed that they may not return to the campus due to the harsh reality of the economy troubling their families.

All civil workers in the state complain bitterly of salaries deduction to fix troubled areas yet we dare not close our eyes for fear of terrorists waylaying residents in the state.

Funny enough to this “ABU-LOLO” led the administration on the recent fees hikes in IBB university. For over 5 years spent in Lord Lugard house, no tangible project was executed in the school. IBBUL would have been another story if not for TETFUND intervention

And to union leaders of the varsity who released a memo on 25th of August, crying bitterly of some comrades trying to compromise their effort for money. Revisit your midst and fetch them out!

In climes like Nigeria, we should not have a vault of keeping a dirty secret. No, any sensible administration will tend to harbour or cover colleague’s fraud shredding to ruin others struggle.

The alleged N1.5 million given by the state government is still a laser glare in the public eyes. We all need clarification on the matter.

Without a doubt, a leader who chooses to love money than his mandate will in the end achieve no success in his tenure.

We thought of a leader who could not gather tears in our eyes but here-we have one but none of the students will cry.

Fellow students let us embrace our fate as it comes, leaders, we elected have consumed our mandate for their cavity. We shall not die.
