ASUU slams Federal Government and Aisha Buhari over plan for private university

 

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has slammed the Federal Government and Aisha Buhari over plans to set up a private University to be named after Muhammadu Buhari.

 

According to ASUU, the proposed plan is why President Buhari continues to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015.

Omole said: “When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far. If we have a president in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting president.

“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education”.
