Senate Backs ASUU, Asks Nigerian Govt To Resolve Issues by Jothamthompson: 4:54pm On Nov 07, 2018
The Senate has called on the Nigerian government to address the demands of the Academic Staff Union on Universities (ASUU) to end the strike by members of the union.

ASUU on Sunday commenced the industrial action over poor funding of Nigerian universities and alleged plan by the federal government to increase students fees and introduce an education bank.

Led by its national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU declared the strike at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting late on Sunday in Akure, Ondo State.

About 24 hours after the strike commenced, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, said the federal government does not have the financial power to meet the demands of the union.

He said the crash in the prices of oil globally has affected Nigeria – which he said, had dire consequences on all sectors of the economy, including education.

A senator, Shehu Sani (PRP, Kaduna Central), on Wednesday, however described the strike as a national problem. He explained that since 1992, Nigerians have been faced with strike after strike which have led to repeated shutdowns of universities.

He also stated that the issues raised by ASUU “are genuine.”

“The federal government needs to fund public universities. The issues raised by ASUU is in the best interest of education in Nigeria and is also in the best interest of the young people.

“Our universities need adequate funding. Our universities need adequate attention. The strike should not be seen as an act of confrontation but an attempt by ASUU to bring to the spotlight, the plight of public universities in Nigeria.

“Public universities have been underfunded and sometimes people wonder whether the universities we have are simply glorified secondary schools. This action should be an opportunity for each and every one of us to draw the attention of the authorities that are concerned to fund universities, to listen to ASUU and to see that the issues which they raised, are squarely addressed,” he said.

ASUU do not receive money from FG. It is given to Vice Chancellors who most times misappropriate it. ASUU do engage VCs in a struggle to ensure the money is well utilized.

Be informed.

Please be guided. Your write up sounds imbecilic. Senators may be useless as u said but not always. This time, they are correct. ASUU has tried for Nigerians. If not ASUU, no one will attend University because government doesn't mean well for us.

Visit Covenant University and check their fees. Average Nigerians can't afford it. The Senators are right this time.

This ASUU strike is a miasma of a deprecable
apothesis of an hemorrhaging plutocracy,
cascadingly oozing into a maladorous excresence
of mobocracy… With all tarmangant ossifying
proclivities of a kakistocracy, our academical
knowledgia centura is enveloped in a paraphlegic
crinkum crankum. What a debilitating
rhabarbaration, what a disconsolate, dreary
situation and anomalistic melancholia,
academical atavism, reversion, throwback and a
political ataraxy....
Believe me that this ASUU strike is just a
political yoyos and yobbos rococo and the
recidivistic politicos in the Nigeria National
Assembly have become hubristic to fulfill their
obligations to pass laws that will ameliorate the
brobdingnagian hunger in the land. All I know is
we are tired of their mendaciloquence,
presstitute and zabernism...Until there is
transmogrification, ASUU won't surrender....
