ASUU Wants A Bill To Stop Public Officials’ Children From Attending Foreign Universities


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has advocated for legislation to control how public servants’ children enroll in schools abroad.

At the solidarity demonstration organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Tuesday in Yenagoa, Kingdom Tombra, the union’s chairman for the University of Niger Delta University’s Wilberforce Island branch, made this statement.

Recall that the NLC joined the ASUU and other affiliate unions in a nationwide demonstration against the ongoing nationwide strike in Nigeria’s public universities.

If this is done, it will increase Nigeria’s university finances and help to create a better society by creating strong educational institutions.

We are fully dedicated to this struggle since it is not against the government but rather the working class and the ruling class.

“I don’t believe the strike will happen again if the wealthy and the poor attend the same university or organization.

“They will show complete support for the university system and the higher institutions in Nigeria if they school here and their children are here,” he said.

On February 14, lecturers at government-run universities started a statewide strike in protest of the introduction of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as the industry’s payment system.
