AGF berates ASUU over strikes

The Accountant General of the Federation (AGF), Ahmed Idris, has blasted the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over their incessant strike as the only means of resolving issues with government, without considering the students’ plight.

He also called for complete reform in the way public universities are being run in the country in order to move with the current global trend.

Idris spoke Saturday in Kano when the foundation he founded, Al-Ihsan Social Intervention Foundation, distributed admission letters to 30 indigent students it is sponsoring to study at the newly established Khadija University, Majia, Jigawa State.

Idris said, “An average student in our public universities today hardly graduates in his stipulated time without being disrupted by strikes. Their colleagues in private universities may even graduate before them, have their masters’ degree or even marry before they complete theirs.”

He, however, called on other wealthy individuals to help the education sector as government alone could not educate everyone.
