Federal Government Says Fresh ASUU Strike Threat Causing Panic

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has taken exclusion to a proposed plan to establish a private university to be named after President Buhari by his wife Aisha Buhari saying the move negates the development of existing public universities in the country.

The Union, through its University of Ibadan branch Chairman Deji Omole and Former National Treasurer of the Union Ademola Aremu, alleged that the plan which is still in early stage has confirmed why President Buhari has continued to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015.

While advising the President and his wife to be hesitant in establishing the proposed university, the academic union, said if the plan comes to fruition, it will spell doom for public university education and also an indication that the presidency does not take funding of public universities as a priority.It would be recalled that Aisha Buhari at a Town hall meeting in Yola, Adamawa state said that she would establish a private university to be named after President Buhari in partnership with some foreigners
