The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, says Nigerians would soon begin to pelt senators with stones for being insensitive to their plights as demonstrated by their plan to acquire exotic cars despite the harsh economic situation in the country.
Ogunyemi stated this on Monday in an interview with journalists at the end of ASUU’ s National Executive Council meeting at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
Ogunyemi, who accused the lawmakers of making anti-people policies, said it would not be long before the Nigerian masses begin to attack lawmakers.
The professor said,
“They move about in armored cars at a time when those who suffered in the rain and sun to put them in the office are languishing in abject poverty.
“They are insensitive to the point that they are telling us they want to buy what they called exotic cars. It is provocative and by the time Nigerians become fully conscious, they will be stoned.
“A time will come that the rich would not be able to sleep when the poor are hungry, and that is what the Nigerian ruling class is not recognizing.”
