“Tell us how you got N100m to buy presidential form, When your salary is less than a million a Month” – ASUU Asks Education Minister

Uramah Media

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has fired back at the Minister of State for Education and presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, to tell Nigerian people how he got N100million to buy the APC Presidential forms.

The association of university lecturers said in serious climes, the minister should be under interrogation by the anti-graft agencies.

Recall that the university academic staff union have been on strike since February 14, 2022.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiba and the Minister of Labour Dr. Chris Ngige have declared intentions to succeed their principal, President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

The Chairperson, ASUU Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State, Socrates Ebo, while addressing newsmen in Yenagoa on Tuesday said, ” it is a shame that a serving junior minister of education will boldly declare that he is starving university lecturers all over the nation for daring to ask that the education system in the country be improved.”

He further said: “Truly, you can’t shame the shameless. Since when has demanding for the improvement of education in the country become an offence? This is a very sad low in the annals of our country. Indeed, charlatans have taken charge of our affairs.

The minister of education should be educated that lecturers’ duties include: community service, teaching and research. As we speak, lecturers all over the country are engaged in research and community service.

“The strike is a last resort in the attempt to make a reason-deaf government to improve facilities in our public universities, pay lecturers a living wage and stop the frittering away of the nation’s dwindling resources through IPPIS. What part of this demand is crime?

“The minister who is putting up a show of pretending to attempt to lead the country should rather tell Nigerians how he came by a whooping sum of N100m to purchase his party’s nomination form when his legitimate salary is less than a million naira in a month.
