Striking Universities; Federal Government and ASUU, Who Should Be Blamed?Join the conversation; Let’s hear your opinion
Comments and Reactions:
I’m sure some of you don’t even know the genesis of this strike!
Your own is to come here and open up on vagueness known for without looking at facts clinically!
If we ask that universities should be privatization, would the poor still afford it because that’s the only way to make ASUU embroidery and Government an end fight!
The ideal thing to do, but the conversation has always been the children of the very poor will not have access to education because it will be expensive for them.
But yet nothing is free not even in Freetown!
Education is expensive all over the world.
Only in Nigeria do we have cheap Education that’s some are not productive as a person.
Not every American can afford to send their children to a university.
Should we ask Government to create or support technical schools more?
“Are ASUU being realistic in their demand”
this is my take too?
Yes, governance is continuous but in 2009 when the agreement was signed, it was a time of plenty waterpot implemented through to 2015 when that administration started to borrow to pay salaries.
That administration injured the economy to the extent that it requires a lot of surgery to bring back to shape, it is now ASUU insisted d 2009 agreement must be implemented to letter.
Don’t forget some billions of nairwereas released to offset part of revitalization and allowances recently
I marveled when I read their demands, the same set of clo+wns that don’t want to be on the government automatic payment platform.
You will never see any of their members discuss their demands on media instead they will be anyone that the schools an in bad shape, which we all agreed but it should be a process, many things are in bad shape in the country.
I wonder what the then education minister was sm+oking to agree to suckle mind request After all anyone imagines how humongous it will often if after 10 years it still looks hum+ongous anyone with se+nse
The problem starts with comparing their salaries to what an average politician earns.
I have advised them several times to also look for a political party, obtain forms and try their luck
After all, no one is born a politician.
I tire 4 this ASUU Sha.
Suntai Kamsi: As if education is the only problem Nigeria is facing today
Is university that important, answer is NO
Waec is okay, university is just bonus
Tell us the benefits of university of today Nigeria since we still have millions of educated nuisances, educated illiterates n unproductives Bsc,MSc n PhD holders
Dolapo Adeniran: 2009 agreement reached with ASUU is no longer implementable says Labour Minister. Why can’t ASUU start a new negotiation, and employ collective bargaining as a trade union instead of current confrontation with the FG? ASUU is not being reasonable in their demands by comparing themselves with NASS members, and dictating to their employer how they should be paid. Moreover, funding is the major issue. The fact remains that government alone can no longer fund quality education without payment of tuitions and endowment funds. We all have a role to play in resolving ASUU and university education issues. May Nigeria succeed.
Imegim Omubo: And 17 persons picked the APC expression of interest form of #100,000, 000m each.
The 17 of them are occupying one position or the other under the current Buhari’s Govt. And have failed to talk to their boss, to negotiate with ASUU.
The Shock is: Some Nigerian students are supporting these people to be their next President 🚶. But i know our Youths are better than this.
Kelechu Christian: This is a welcome development. I must commend ASUU for taking the bull by the horns in extending this strike.
This is a step in the right direction, as it will help to bring the attention of the world on the academic miasma, pigsty and imbroglio ravaging our tertiary institutions.
Even the infinitesimal of person will appreciate this move, unless such a person is under the attack of the ailment, physiological nystagmus that prevents one from seeing well, as dementia prevents one from remembering. I’m fully in support of this strike!
Zahrodeen Sabi: The best university in Nigeria is the ‘university of ibadan’ which was ranked as the 1196in the world. You guy are taking your kids to some best university outside the country while here we’re managing the kind system of education in Nigeria, most of us end up in universities like taraba state uni jalingo (11927 ranked), bauchi state uni (10886 ranked) and with all this huge lag you guy (ASUU) are still creative a way to mess up our future, i was told that teacher and any there to aid my learn is like a parent to me but NO i do not believe in this anymore, you think you’re punishing the federal government but no you’re messing with millions of student’s future who haven’t done you anything wrong. I hope one day you’ll understand
Amasa Jnr: I said this before and i will still say it again and again, in as much as this ASUU/FG ugly trend still persist…
I Suspects Govt and ASUU are indirectly subscribing to the BokoHaram ideology of outlawing Western Education in this country…
There is a well established relationship between what the BokoHaram and Bandits are doing to our schools and the Govt Actions and policies that is negatively affecting education in this country.
Raphael Lagan:. There was no need to extend it,you should have Conditionally suspended it with A Deadline of 1-3 month.Failure by FG to meets your demand blow it to indefinite.
The extension will do more harm than good.
Because whatever this strike give birth to soonest, Nigerians should be ready to Accept it in good faith.
John Mark: It’s really frustrating knowing that FG and ASSU can’t come to a common ground to resolve issues concerning academic in the country, Nigeria as a country look really like a country that don’t know what is attainable in a civil society.
Government owned academic institution are on strike and the only trending issues is who is able to a get political party form to contest for political office that even their political agenda worsen the condition of her citizens.
