The Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) has decried the deaths of some professors due to economic hardship in the country.

This revelation was made known by Salahu Muhammed, the Abuja zonal coordinator of ASUU, via a statement.

According to him, the union has lost some professors at some universities, including the University of Abuja, Federal University of Technology, Minna, Federal University, Lafia, Nasarawa State University, Nasarawa, and Ibrahim Babangida University, Lapai.

He added that since the last decade, more Nigerian academics have been leaving the country in droves in search of greener pastures, thereby leading to the overwork of the patriotic ones that remain in the system, whose level of patriotism is dwindling daily due to poor remuneration and working conditions.

“It is also worthy of note that the union has lost several members during the period under review due to herculean working conditions, psychological and emotional stress, and diseases related to these conditions. For instance, universities in the Abuja zone have lost 46 members.

“Just two days ago, the union lost an eminent Professor of Fisheries, Johnson Oyero, of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, due to his inability to afford a quality medical facility,” Muhammed stated.
