Rema Gains Admission To UNILAG, Appeals To ASUU To End Strike
Afro-pop singer, Rema has revealed that he already gained admission to study at the University of Lagos and the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is the only thing delaying his resumption,
The Mavin artist also pleads with ASUU to call off its ongoing strike.
Rema tweeted on Monday;
“ASUU, since dem give me admission I neva start school o, e don do nau! (sic: in pidgin English)” .
According to him, despite his growing fame in the music industry, his mother insisted that he obtained a University degree.
ASUU declared a four-week warning strike on February 14, and thereafter extended the action by eight weeks in March.
According to the union, the strike was due to Federal Government’s failure to implement the agreement between both parties, signed in 2009.
ASUU had also accused the Federal Government of working against the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, a payment platform designed by the union in place of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System by the Federal Government.
