We have heard a lot of news about Asuu Strike and to be frank most students are no longer in interested in reading different stories from the Federal Government (FG) and the Academic Staff Union of University, (ASUU). We heard sometime ago, that the new PDP (or whatever they call themselves) where doing fasting about this ASUU Strike, they want to play polities with our Education? Our Future? Who told them that doing fasting and prayers will bring out the needed money in their pocket? are they fighting against themselves? Anyways, we heard that Asuu Strike will soon be called off, but how soon, we do not know.
My next post will show you how you can secure admission into any Ghana University and never bother about Asuu Strike and FG again.(but seeking for admission outside the shore of Nigeria, you will be needing a lot of money.)

Prof. Julius Okojie, Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC) says he is confident that the protracted strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will soon be called off.
Okojie, who spoke on Wednesday in Abuja at a media parley with journalists, said the commission was doing everything within its powers to ensure a speedy resolution of the issues raised by ASUU so that students could return school.
“We are part of the system and we understand the issues, we are meeting with members of the union all the time and the issues are being tackled.
“So, we are optimistic the strike will soon be called off and our children can go back to school in the shortest possible time.’’
He also reacted to the call by ASUU for NUC to be scrapped, saying “the call is not in good faith as the commission has not gone to sleep over its duties”.
Also speaking on the recurrent disagreements between the commission and some professional bodies over accreditation and running of certain courses by some universities,
Okojie acknowledged that there were issues that needed to be resolved between both parties.
“There is no country in the world where regulatory bodies and professional bodies go to regulate at the same time.
“So, it is true we are having problems with professional bodies in carrying out our mandate, but the issues too will soon be resolved and we can move on.
The executive secretary, who said that the commission had closed many faculties not fit to run courses in certain universities, admitted that; “it is not easy to be a regulator’’.
According to him, the commission was “silently regulating the system’’ having to also pay professional fees and encourage professors to do accreditation. (NAN)
