Breaking News: ASUU Strike Will Be Over In Few Months – Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike
We are already tired of hearing this same story over and over again, and am sure the Nigeria Students are tired of reading this kind of news over and over again. All we need is for the Federal Government to meet the demand of ASU8 and implement the 2009 agreement so that the strike will be called off. It is now a known fact that F.G don’t value our education. May God help us all.
Read the latest ASUU news below and you will be surprise that ASUU strike will not be called off anytime soon.
The minister of Education assure Nigerian Students that the strike will be called off in the coming months? (1,3 or 12months? Only time will tell)
ASUU Strike ‘ll Be Over In Few Months – Wike
The Federal Government, yesterday, (22nd October, 2013) assured Nigerian students that the ongoing strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, would be over in a few months. (our input: few months is not few days please)
The Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike stated this at the anniversary lecture of National Universities Commission, NUC, in Abuja.
The minister who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Dr. Macjohn Nwaobiala, reiterated Federal Government commitment in resolving the ongoing strike of ASUU.
Minister of State for Eduction, Barrister Esenwo According to Wike, “The Federal Government is very concerned about the state of public tertiary institutions in the country. The Federal Government is really worried about the ongoing strike of ASUU and the strike would be resolved in a few months.”
Professor John Daniel in his paper presentation titled, ‘Turbulent and Testing Times for Global Higher Education: Lessons for Nigeria’, said “online teaching and learning is now part of the future of most universities. Nigeria should be very good at this because without embarrassing you by pressing the point, I note that your country, through 419 scams, is a world leader in the use of the internet for less desirable purposes.”
He said higher education all over the world is facing lot of challenges that included youth unemployment and the current changes in the university system.
“These are indeed turbulent times, not only for United States of America but also for much of higher education globally”, he said.
A former Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor Jubril Munzali, in his goodwill message, said the education sector for 21 years have been under funded and the significant increase in the funding of tertiary institutions were done through the struggle of ASUU.
Nigerian Students, the Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike has promise that the ASUU strike will be called off in a few months time. So my candid advice to all students is to go learn a trade until the strike is called off.
