FG Gradually Abandoning Public Universities – ASUU President

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said that the Federal Government is gradually disengaging itself from funding public universities across the country.

In a statement signed by ASUU national president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, after a two-day National Executive Council meeting held at the University of Calabar, Cross River State, maintained it was not in support of the proposed introduction of education loan, saying it would fail.

It said the union was disturbed by the surreptitious moves by the government to price university education beyond the reach of poor Nigerian students and their parents through the introduction of various charges.

ASUU also called on Nigerians to prevail on Nigerian government to urgently address all outstanding issues contained in the December 2020 FGN-ASUU Memorandum of Action.
