Nigeria’s 2023 presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba II, has reacted over the lingering strike action embarked by the academic union, ASUU, while faulting FG over its inability to settle the association demands.
He wrote “If Federal Government can budget 4Trn Naira for fuel subsidies that will go to the pocket of less than 200 people, why can’t they give ASUU their demand? Because ASUU isn’t a priority because their children don’t need ASUU to graduate.”
The APC presidential aspirant further stated;
“NOTE: I am not a supporter of ASUU and its current configuration, that is, activism driven and strike prone. As part of our education system blueprint, we have developed a better education policy model that will ensure a smooth, stable, and continuous education system in Nigeria from Primary school to tertiary level.
It is bad enough for me that we still remain with curricula that are theory-based and in most cases, obsolete. We must evolve a method that should teach our students courses that are tuned to modern times.
However, since the government is interested in spending 4TrnNGN on a corruption-ridden but frivolous subsidy regime, why won’t FG just settle ASUU issues too and let our students go back to classrooms?
