The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has called for the sack of Minister of State for Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike who ASUU claims is more worried about the Rivers state crisis than the lingering crisis in the universities.

asuu.1The Coordinator of ASUU, Ilorin Zone, Dr. Adeleke Ayan said that instead of Wike to be concerned about the nationwide strike he is bogged down with local river’s politics which is not under his jurisdiction.

At a press conference Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, Ayan, who is the Chairman of ASUU in Ekiti State University (EKSU), said it was lamentable that the minister had allegedly abandoned crucial national issues like ASUU strike and started indulging in local politics.

He called for immediate release of the N100 billion the government promised to turn around the country’s Ivory Towers around, saying “a lot of restoration will take place if the money is released in our universities”.

Describing Wike as a ‘roving minister’, Ayan declared that, “The involvement of Minister of State for Education in Rivers State crisis is an example of reckless abandonment of serious national issue for pecuniary pursuit. The Ilorin Zone grossly condemns this roving minister and calls for his immediate removal”.

ASUU threatened that it would no longer enter into any ‘unproductive’ agreement or Memorandum of Understanding with Federal Government, having reneged on the previous ones.

“The Previous MoU of March 2012 was so clear that if the Minister of Education and National Universities Commission (NUC) Executive Secretary have not sabotaged it through bureaucracy, there won’t have been any need for another strike”, ASUU said.
