    Jackson, your age have failed you. You should speak more honorably than call on ASUU to call of the strike. I ask you, why do people go into agreements?. You are ignorant and uninformed. Have you started taking kola in the Nigeria style, what do you lack that you can demean yourself to such levels? Nigerians are disappointed with you. I have no respect for you again. The agreement with the FG and ASUU was 2009, call on the Nigerian government to implement the agreement and only then can you save your face before the Nigerian youths, seek to know what the Nigerian universities look like before you can be stupefied.
