‎Education minister blames ‘previous’ administration for ASUU strike ‎


Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has blamed a previous administration for the strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

He said a previous administration shouldn’t have entered into an agreement with ASUU to pay them N1.3trilion.‎

Adamu spoke during a Town Hall meeting on security issues tagged ‘Engaging the Youth and Communities’ at the Multi-Purpose Indoor Sports Hall Complex Bauchi, on Monday.‎

“A government in this country went and sat down with ASUU and agreed on some conditions that it would pay universities N1.3 trillion.‎

“I do believe that while they were signing that agreement, they knew that it is not possible for them to implement it. There is just nowhere N1.3trn will come out from.

“I think the basic problem between the ASUU side and the government side has been deciding on what to do about this N1.3 trillion. If a government appends its signature to an agreement, it is an agreement,” he said.

Noting that an agreement would soon be reached by the government and ASUU, he added,”We are not happy that our campuses are closed, we are not happy that the calendar of schools has been disrupted.

“But the fault is the government that signed to do what it knew it could not do.

“But I assure you that we are on the verge of reaching an agreement and very, very soon, we will reach an agreement with them.”‎
