The academic staff union of universities, lagos zone has reacted to the recent comment made by the minister of labour and employment, dr chris ngige, on a live tv programme, suggesting that government cannot afford n110 billion for the revitalisation of universities.

 

The union in a statement issued on sunday by lagos zonal coordinator, prof. olusiji sowande, urged parents, students, and the general public not to be persuaded by the statement made by ngige.

 

ASUU which had been on strike for seven months faulted the federal government for paying bail out funds to the private sector and failed to pay the revitalisation fund for the universities.

 

The union zonal coordinator while reacting said, “the statement is laced with the hidden fact that the minister and his team have no intention of ending the ongoing strike this year.

It also raised the concern that over the years, the nigerian government has spent over n1.5 trillion to bail out power generation and distribution companies to keep their business afloat despite privatisation of the power sector.

 

“if the government could bailout private businesses for ‘business good’ then nigerian public universities deserved to be bailed out for ‘public good’,” he added.
