ASUU Crisis: Second Coming Of FG/ASUU Clash Will Make Endsars Crisis A Child’s Play – Engr. Odo Ijere(Okpotemba Ohafia), Convener Abia Infrastructural Mandate.

THE SECOND COMING OF FG/ASUU CLASH WILL MAKE ENDSARS CRISIS A CHILD'S PLAY. Most of those masquerading themselves in the corridors of power today and speaking on behalf of the Federal Government or Buhari are irresponsible, vile, insular, evil, and narcissist.
