"I no get any reason to comit my sef to dia strike, ASUU na association of lecturers inside Nigeria, especially of pipo wey dey willing to join and dem get dia rules and regulation wey dey control members of ASUU."
Tori be say Ambrose Ali University reopen for new semester on Monday November 12 just one week after ASUU begin national strike, so as Professor Edeko dey teach for class room pesin come ask am whether im no go obey di union of university lecturers not to teach, na dia im provoke.
