President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, has advised Nigerians not to vote for politicians whose children are studying abroad.

His comment comes in the wake of the ongoing strike by ASUU which began months ago.

Osodeke said this on Wednesday, August 17, during a Twitter Space Webinar organised by Premium Times on the topic, "ASUU strike, Revitalisation Fund and the Way Forward."

He pointed out that in order to end ASUU strikes, he urged students not vote for politicians who have their children in institutions outside the country.

Adding that these leaders do not represent their interests.

Osodeke said, "Anybody you believe cannot take care of your interests, whose children are busy studying abroad, who are living abroad, don’t vote for them, I repeat, you don’t need to vote for them, because you don’t vote for people who will take your life."
