Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has reiterated the Federal Government’s commitment to revamp the educational system in the country.
Ngige said this during the reconvened meeting between the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASSU and the federal government in Abuja.
He assured the union that the federal government would not abandon the public universities in spite dwindling resources.
Ngige said that government would be happy to concentrate its limited resources in areas that would produce good effect for the country.
The minister added that some of us in government may not be the Ministers of Education, but we can influence things.
The ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, commended the minister for demonstrating an uncommon faith in the university system by sending his children to Nigerian public schools.
