Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the two weeks ultimatim President Buhari gave to Education Minister to resolve their issue is to long.

 

ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this Tuesday during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.

 

Recall President Muhammadu Buhari had directed the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, to resolve the prolonged industrial action embarked upon by the ASUU and other university-based unions. But responding to the directive, Osodeke said

 

“Two weeks is too long. The issue of negotiation has been completed by both sides.

 

 

They should just come back to us and say we have agreed to sign.” Osodeke also added that if not for ASUU’s struggle Nigerian universities may be reduced to public primary schools in three years.

 

“If we are not sincere, if we are not fully committed, we would have abandoned this struggle. Do you know what will happen? In the next two to three years Nigerian universities will be like public primary and secondary schools.

 

“If we are not sincere Federal Government will not be owing our five-month salaries and we are still on strike looking for how to raise money for our children; we would have gone back. What we are saying is that the government should change our system.

I want to plead to the president on behalf of Nigerian children who cannot afford it that the legacy he should leave behind is to transform this system,” Prof Osodeke added.
