labaran_makuThe Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has chided Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku for saying Nigeria would shut down if the Federal Government grants all the demands by the striking university lecturers.

ASUU described the minister’s statement as a careless utterance and indication of his ignorance of the agreement between the FG and ASUU.

The union in a statement by Zonal Coordinator, Calabar zone, Dr. Charles Ononuju, urged Nigerians to disregard the statement while asking Maku to apologise to for such unguarded comments and warned him to stop playing politics with the future of the Nigerian child.

ASUU said: “Nigerians should ignore the careless utterance by the Minister of Information that the country will shut down if ASUU’s demand is met. It seems the minister has not seen or read the 2009 ASUU/FG agreement.

“The country has not shut down with constant government wastages and billions of dollars being stolen. The minister should apologise to Nigerians for such unguarded comments and stop playing politics with the future of Nigerian child.”
