The face-off between the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities has continued to deepen with the authorities insisting that Nigeria is the best united states of america in which academics stroll away after shutting down Universities.
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, stated these in an interview with our correspondent in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “The cause we need ASUU returned in college is that there is a reason for which we built those Universities. In other places within the international, you may’t close down the University gadget and just walk away.
“It is only in Nigeria they do it and that is why, repeatedly over the years, it had become a crack; human beings simply take pleasure in destroying the lives of these young guys, so that they may be on the streets, in order that they may do protest.
“This has not anything to do with the government. The monies government is going to pay these academics are monies gotten from other incomes; the monies are Nigerian human beings’s cash and we hand it over to teachers for a process they introduced them to do for Nigerians and they don’t want to do it, they simply accumulate their cash and walk away.”
The minister counseled lecturers no longer inclined to keep coaching to leave the device for people who are involved.
