Stop playing politics with education of students, Suswam tells ASUU

6

From ROSE EJEMBI, Makurdi

Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswam has described as impracticable, the insistence by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) that its members would not go back to class until all their demands as contained in the 2009 agreement are met. 

The governor urged the leadership of ASUU to stop playing politics with the education of Nigerian students, saying there was no basis for it to remain on strike when government was doing everything to meet its demand.

Suswam, who is the chairman of Universities Needs Assessment and Implementation Committee made the observation yesterday when he played host to the National Union of Benue State Students (NUBESS) at the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Makurdi.

While noting that the Federal Government (FG) had done everything that needed to be done to ensure that the strike was called off, the governor lamented that the leadership of ASUU was misleading the public about the true state of the issues involved.

The governor, who averred that state universities had no reason being on strike, posited that N100 billion had been shared on pro-rata basis to all universities out of which the Benue State University (BSU) got N950 million.

He maintained that the N30 billion released as End Allowance was to be shared among federal universities only and wondered why state universities had continued to be on strike.

“Benue State University has no business being on strike because out of the N100 billion that was released by the Federal Government, it got N950 million. ASUU should stop playing politics with the education of Nigerian students.”

He regretted that despite the fact that the Federal Government had shifted grounds to ensure amicable resolution of the problem, ASUU had refused to shift ground on the matter and called on Nigerians to engage ASUU with a view to making sure that the strike was called off.

Earlier, President of NUBESS, Matthew Mamwo, who commended the governor for his efforts at ensuring that the FG/ASUU rift was quickly resolved, appealed to ASUU to have pity on the students and call off the strike.

    The students should not be deceived by the political lies of of the FG committee.
    If it is impracticable, why was there the agreement in the first place?
    Could it be impracticable to sponsor the president, his wife and their aides to worthless foreign trips?
    Could it be impracticable to use this same resources in settling political jobbers?
    could it be impracticable to use the resources in paying for campaigns and election rigging?
    could it be inpracticale to use the same resources to fund foreign accounts?

    Suswam should be bold enough to tell the students that education is not a priority for todays FG.

  6. Nnamdi tnx for your comment…but issues like this is better left unsaid rather than been used, like the popular saying in my place that “it is better not to intervene on husband and wife problem cos when they will settle themselves they will not tell you and you will become their topic of discussion and start to analyze all your comments….so lets allow the dead to bury their dead here as the bible suggest.
