ASUU Strike: Final Year Medical Student Turns Street Food Vendor

Usman Abubakar-Rimi, a final year Medicine and Surgery student of the Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, UDUS, has turned to a street food vendor due to prolonged industrial action by University lecturers.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday, September 9,  Abubakar-Rimi said he conceived the initiative in order to engage in productive living as the strike forced students to become redundant.

The student who owns a food outlet and noodle joint in the Diplomat area in Sokoto metropolis explained that the ongoing extended strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, gave him the full opportunity. 

“A plate of food sells from N200 and above depending on the needs of the customer,” Mr Abubakar-Rimi said. 

He explained that he owns another shop on Fodio road also in the Sokoto metropolis where he sells men and women’s clothing, caps, student bags, and shoes.

“I am always happy to see that I become an employer of labour as at present I engaged 10 persons in the two shops. I relied on the shops for handsome incomes, because I don’t ask my parents for any money in spite of the fact that schools were closed,”
