A controversial former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has accused the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), of destroying Nigeria’s education system.
The social media politician who is also a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated this in a Facebook post, lamenting that the union was always striking for money and not innovative learning or the betterment of education of the country.
‘The single most destructive system of Education in Nigeria is ASUU. Always Striking for money, not for innovative learning.
‘I don’t know why such kind of Union still exists when we are not a communist state,’ he wrote.
His comment comes after ASUU threatened another strike if the Federal Government failed to fulfil agreements reached in December 2020.
The body had given the Federal Government three weeks warning or risk another nationwide industrial action.
Africa Today News, New York had on Monday reported that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has gave the Federal Government a 21-day ultimatum over the failure of the government to implement the agreement reached with it, vowing to embark on industrial action should the Govt not heed to their demands.
ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke made this known when he spoke during a press briefing at the University of Abuja. He blamed the Federal Government for failing to honour the agreement it signed with the union, which made it call off its strike in December 2020.
Africa Today News, New York recalls that in March 2020, ASUU embarked on a nine-month strike following its disagreement with the Federal Government over the funding of universities and alleged ineffectiveness and discrepancies around the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System and others.
