According to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Abuja Zone, the nation’s current economic woes have claimed the lives of multiple university lecturers.

Salahu Muhammad, the union’s zonal coordinator for Abuja, declared in a statement that the union had lost a number of professors at different universities, including Nasarawa State University in Nasarawa, Ibrahim Babangida University in Lapai, Federal University of Technology in Minna, and Federal University in Lafia.

According to Muhammad, the poor pay and unfavorable working conditions cause patriotic academics who choose to stay behind to become overworked and lose their sense of patriotism.

“It is also noteworthy that the union has experienced a number of membership losses during the review period as a result of extreme working conditions, psychological and emotional strain, and illnesses associated with these conditions,” he stated. Universities in the Abuja zone, for example, have lost forty-six members.

Due to his inability to pay for a good medical facility, the union lost renowned Fisheries Professor Johnson Oyero of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, just two days ago.

His statement is made at a time when Nigerians are still suffering from the effects of President Bola Tinubu’s decision to stop gasoline subsidies and the naira’s persistent decline in the foreign exchange market.

Nigerians have persisted in staging rallies throughout the nation to voice their displeasure with President Tinubu’s economic policies, which have caused previously unheard-of levels of misery for the nation.
