Don’t Handle Education Like Muhammadu Buhari – ASUU Tells Bola Tinubu

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned Bola Tinubu, the President-elect not to handle Nigerian education like President Muhammadu Buhari did during his tenure.

According to the Chairman of ASUU, the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State Prof. Gbolahan Bolarin stated this during an interview.

Prof. Gbolahan Bolarin who is also a member of the National Executive Council of ASUU, Prof Gbolahan Bolarin, urged the incoming government not to emulate the regime of Buhari.

He said, “The first thing that one would expect from the next President is that university education must be a priority. No one should treat the university education system with disdain that would make our students stay at home for eight months because of governance failure.

“He cannot afford to treat academics like they are not humans the way the President is treating us.”

The PUNCH reports that public universities suffered from disruptions in the academic calendar under the Buhari regime.

In 2020, universities were shut for close to eight months. Similarly, there was an eight-month disruption of academic activities in universities in 2022.

Lecturers have been demanding improved welfare, an end to the proliferation of universities, and increased funding among others. Tinubu has severally promised that under his watch education would be given priority.

He pledged that there would no longer be strikes in the university, saying “a four-year court will be completed in four years.”

Meanwhile, the outgoing Rector of the Federal Polytechnic, Ile Oluji, Ondo State, Prof. Emmanuel Fasakin, has urged the government not to allow polytechnic education to die from neglect.

The rector appealed to Akure on Monday, at the launch of his memoir to mark the end of his two-term tenure as pioneer rector of the polytechnic.

The book was titled: “Beyond the ordinary: the journey of my life and experience at the Federal Polytechnic, Ile-Oluji.” He said, “Polytechnic education is needed to provide manpower for our industries. Nigeria should not rely on manpower from outside the country for its industries to survive.

“Nigerian government should provide a conducive and enabling environment for Nigerian citizens to work and thrive in their respective academic endeavors.”

Fasakin said he had laid a good foundation in the institution in the area of infrastructure, and human capital development through teamwork and had provided transformational leadership
