Yesterday the closure of Unilag was ordered by the school management today the 8th of April, followed by students' riot decrying the hardship most Nigerians are presently facing; no power supply, no fuel etc etc etc.
A blog reader reached out to me concerning this matter and posits that this is what NLC should do instead of their weak ass 1 day strike; the NLC or FG should declare a stay at home until such a time as the FG is able to sort itself out and fix things. There's no point in dragging the country through the mud because it wants to "fix the rot" it met in the system. The public sector (save for places of critical interest; airports, hospitals, schools etc) be mandatorily shut down for now, and for the private sector it be optional.
The fact is that there's so much hardship right now, the nation seems to be crumbling and people are finding life difficult. Salaries are not increasing yet cost of transportation has increased by almost 400% in some places. Service providers have trebled their charges because there's no fuel. Same goes for products too, they'd tell you "blame it on the dollar". So don't you agree that we should all borrow a leaf from Unilag Management whose hands have been forced to shut down the school indefinitely? We understand that things may have to get worse before they get better, but why do we the people have to be made collateral damage?
Just saying... What say you?
