ASUU Slams Buhari Over Poor Education Policy And Funding

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s policy on education as wicked and criminal against the needs of Nigerian youths.

The union accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government of a deliberate plan to starve public education with funds in order to deny Nigerian youths the right to know and challenge misrule.

In a statement signed by its chairman, University of Ibadan Chapter, on Sunday, Prof. Deji Omole, the union lamented that the sacrifices of understaffed and underpaid Nigerian academics will be futile if President Buhari does not increase education funding.

According to ASUU, education is not the priority of the Buhari-led government.

The statement added that due to paucity of funds, over 500,000 Nigerian children who desired public university education were rejected annually due to poor funding, decayed infrastructure and reduced manpower.

The statement further said unless urgent steps were taken to cater for the needs of the Nigerian children, many of them will fight back with crime.

  2. Every of Buhari's policy is very poor. Education,finance, health, security. It's not surprising.
