The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has thrown back a crowdfunding campaign started by the host of Brekete Family radio show Ahmad Isah popularly known as Ordinary President.

Mr Isah began the initiative early June to end the prolonged strike by the university workers’ union.

In an interview with Isah, however, on Saturday, ASUU president Emmanuel Osodeke said the union would distance itself from the campaign and that its name should be removed.

In his move to see to the end of the strike which began in February, Isah created a bank account for donations.

He published the account on Twitter, calling on the public to “make a difference” by donating to end ASUU strike.

Isah also announced he would donate N10 million for the cause, urging people with presidential ambition to donate the same amount they used in buying party forms.

“I the #OrdinaryPresident will donate #10million towards the demand of ASUU from FG, to get the universities running.

“Let all our presidential aspirants who bought party primaries forms donate the same amount they use to buy their forms,” he said.
