The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday slammed the Federal Government and Aisha Buhari, over the proposed plan to establish a private university to be named after President Muhammadu Buhari.
ASUU who slammed Aisha Buhari, further described the proposed university by the wife of President Buhari as a disaster.
According to the union, the plan of the wife of the President to establish a new university confirmed why her Husband continued to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015.Chairman of the union, University of Ibadan chapter, Professor Deji Omole and a former National Treasurer of the Union, Professor Ademola Aremu who spoke in separate interviews with newsmen in Ibadan, all berated the First Lady over the proposed move.
Omole said: “When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far. If we have a president in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting president.
“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education”.
