ASUU Strike: Seun Kuti slams parents attending political rallies lailasnews


Seun Kuti who stated that a hijab crisis in a secular school can create more outrage than the closure of our university, wondered if parents attending political rallies while their kids are at home due to ASUU strike are mad.

He wrote;

“Your children aren’t attending school but u are attending political rally. Are you maaaad?

Until we are ready to serve our children and not just raise them, we shall never understand national development. How hijab crisis in a secular school can create more outrage than the closure of our university for months is the proof we need to know that we are willing to serve everything else but our children. Learn to serve your children not just raise them! #getthesax.”

  1. Nice view but I can tell you that the parent you see out there aren’t happy to see there kids at home due to the strike, but less can they do than to leave there normal life.

  2. Well spoken, some parents are still going to sell their vote in this coming elections. It’s high time we start making things work for ourselves not our politicians.

  3. Well though motives are different… But it’s what should parents do… Sit at home and have the same people who are the anchor of the problem re-elect themselves back in. Power??

  4. My dear tell them too.
    Some of us are not aware that intentional civil disobedience can sometimes right a wrong. They are just after money and that’s all.

  5. If we have a good government they would have been attended to the ASSU problem, that is some people are attending the rally to change the present government

  6. Two wrongs don’t make right, so no matter How poor the system treat it people we will always do our civil duties.

  7. I wonder why some parent seems not to understand this,their children have been at home for long and this people they are camping for don’t have any of their children studying in this country….

  8. My dear what do you mean by the term “serve your children”. A parent ensuring that there’s good governance so as to ensure good standard of living for their children is doing their work towards their children. That there is asuu strike is beyond parents, ABI what do you want them to do? Raze down aso Rock?

  9. They are selling their childrens future for small money they will get at a political rally

  10. This man got a point here.
    How can parent be attending political rally while their children are home, instead of them to rally against Government to settle ASUU so that Students can go back to school.

  11. The greatest scam in this nation is “we are the leaders of tomorrow”. Parents don’t even for that, the only thing they care for is their pockets

  12. I completely agreed with him. Some of our parents should act more mature a bit. The same politicians that kept your children at home are the same people you are canvassing for.

  13. Protest is going on on social media by NANS, which state call off strike or no election , and parents and the soo called students are going about for rally because of the little penny they will get from it

  14. I hail you ooooh go on we have bad government in this country,, from next month now parents we start casting out their while their children are still in the house without any hope of going back to school this year

  15. He has a point, why would parents attend political rally when their children are stocked at home because of ASUU strike, the federal government should do justice and end the strike

  16. that’s the kind of situation we find ourselves so we can’t because of it and can’t live a normal life
    assu or no assu it doesn’t stop the govt from doing what they want

  17. Is quite the truth, attending political rallies, especially of the ones instigating the continuation of the strike

  18. Whether they attend rallies or not, if federal government don’t want to listen to ASUU they won’t, is not today that students started staying at home

  19. No parent is happy to send there child to school and at the end of the day see there child at home all in the name of strike

  20. Tell them oo i don’t know if they have been bought over, they are serving Government that are not even trying at all.

  21. some parents are still going to sell their vote in this coming elections. It’s high time we start making things work for ourselves not our politicians.

  22. Nice view, the government shoulddo something for the students. Staying at home won’t help them at all.

  23. They shouldn’t lose both sides. Let them secure better candidate that will fix this university crisis for their children.

  24. Is there really a strike going on all the children in my area goes to school I don’t understand

  25. Yes parents are not doing well in attending party rallies while their children and wards are at home because of Assu strike, they all forgot that these children are future hopes, let’s change.

  26. There is so much sense to what Seun said. Till we learn to serve our kids, we cannot serve the society at large. Parents can make effort for rally but not their kids education shows misplaced priority.

  27. Well spoken by Seun Kuti and very on point. Parents should put their children first and not allow themselves to be fooled and used by this politicians.

  28. This is the truth. We av been blindfolded by the sweet talks and lies profess by these politicans. God help us.

  29. That’s very right of him. It just worsening our feelings wen we see parents attending those meetings.

  30. Well spoken, some parents are still going to sell their vote in this coming elections. It’s high time we start making things work for ourselves not our politicians.

  31. Why will they support them in the rallies when they have refused to cooperate in other for students to go back to school

  32. This is really an eye opener especially to the men who has children who are suppose to be in the university.

  33. So when ASUU did not called off the strike what did you want them to do now they have no option dats where they can see money

  34. True words out there by Seun Kuti, but I feel these parent aren’t happy seeing their children at home either

  35. Tell them, their children are all studying abroad while their campainers children are suffering from the strike

  36. My question is this.. “Are we moving our country 4ward or backward, pls our leaders answer my question politely

  37. God bless you for us . It really trouble me also when students talk about upcoming election when have not been to school for 3months now

  38. Is parents not part of this nation,i don’t think is rally will make them not to raise their children well, rally will come and go.

  39. Well, he was right from his own point of view but on the other hand, there is nothing this parents can do. It’s not easy with them going for political rally
