Social media became messier and hotter as many Nigerian students mocked Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over typographical error.
Following the story as ASUU trends on Twitter, it was gathered that ASUU called on Nigerian students for their cooperation regarding the re-opening of schools nationwide.
“ASUU Chairman Asks Nigerian Students For Their Corporation”, the post read.
However, the cooperation was written ‘corporation’, which led many social media users plus Nigerian students to mock the Tertiary body association.
According to the reactions, “ASUU wrote CORPORATION instead of COOPERATION on a thread this morning. If you’re studying or ever studied in any Nigerian University, you’re officially allowed to make English blunders from now on. It is approved for mistakes”.
In the post released by ASUU, it was further stated, “Students, who are our children and partners in progress should show understanding, what we are asking from the government are in their interest and the interest of the nation, good hostel accommodation, good classroom blocks that can engender effective learning.
“Laboratories where cutting edge research can be carried out and offices that can drive the process of quality university education”.
Daily News Nigeria also obtained that ASUU requested for the government support as schools re-open soon.
“So what we are asking of the government are not baseless things, but those things that in 2012, the government conducted during a needs assessment survey and found out that there is widespread rot and decay in the University system”, the statement added.
