The Federal Government had said that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, should give in their strength to work in Nigeria and the Educational sector using the same energy they put in getting the Aviation Sector.
According to the ASUU Chairman of the University of Calabar, Dr. Edor J. Edor, the univerties would reopen within one week if the same strength put in the aviation sector is extended to Nigeria’s educational sector.
He further disclosed this in an interview with Daily Post.
His statement reads: “If the government would put the same energy they put in the aviation sector into education, then schools would resume in the shortest possible time.
“If the government can put the same energy and commitment in the aviation sector that enables them and their children to travel to their schools abroad into Nigerian universities, then within one week, schools in Nigeria would reopen.”
He accuses the present band of past Nigerian governments of ignoring the nation’s educational sector.
Edor Maintained that Nigerian elites are not interested in the education of common men and their children in Nigeria.
He maintained that “Not Buhari’s government alone, all successive regimes in Nigeria have ignored the education sector.
“Even when we had a president who was himself a lecturer, things were not better. Successive regimes and the Nigerian elites have no interest in Nigerians’ education, and the reason is simple, their children are not here.
“They do not want the common man to be educated because education is power. The common man immediately begins to know his or her right. These thieves and kleptomaniacs who find themselves in a power position would become threatened because all Nigeria s would have learned their rights.
“They are not interested in developing education, they are not,” he added.
