Famous Nigerian Catholic priest, Rev Fr Chinenye Oluoma has accused Nigerians, especially the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, of exhibiting wrong attitude, saying it hinders progress and development.
Oluoma, in a video posted on his verified Facebookpage on Monday, said a wrong attitude can keep a nation from entering its promised land, no matter how much the people pray.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, uses university senior lecturers for the conduct of elections in Nigeria. They serve as returning officers.
Using ASUU as an instance, the cleric lamented how members of the union would help politicians rig elections and thereafter turn around to complain about the bad condition of public universities, saying it’s as a result of wrong attitude.
He said, Wrong attitude can keep you from entering the promised land. Sometimes we can pray very well, shake mountains with prayer but our attitude is what keeps us from going into the promised land.
Look at professors, we will have ASUU strike for almost one year, but professors will come and read riot acts and may want to go on strike so that government will do this, government must do that. It will be the same professors that will go and write wrong results.
The same professors that the government will use and rig elections, politicians will use and rig elections, tomorrow universities will not be alright and they will be complaining. Wrong attitude.
Help them rig elections and let’s see…If your budget for education is supposed to be N100b and they paid you to rig elections, won’t they recover their money.
If they used N50b in bribing you, maybe they will throw N30b onto you.
