The Academic staff Union of Universities Bauchi Zone has called on government officials to salvage the plight of students and their parents by respecting, honouring its agreements entered with the Union.
Just as the Union accused the Accountant General for compounding more problems to the lingering strike
Our correspondent reports that ASUU Bauchi Zone comprises 6 Universities from Bauchi, Gombe and Plateau states respectively.
Professor Lawan Abubakar ,the Chairman ASUU Bauchi Zone made the call while briefing journalists on Wednesday in Bauchi.
“We are calling on government officials negotiating with us ,we say enough of these slippery offers , enough of the antics and deceits
“We are calling on government officials to salvage the plight of the students and their parents by respecting , honouring and implementing agreement it entered with ASUU
“We also called on students ,their parents, civil society organisations and the general public to continue to understand and support ASUU to rescue Nigerian public University system.
He said all have the responsibility of insisting that the government lives up to its National responsibility by honouring the memorandum of understanding and Momerandunm of action signed with ASUU.
According to Professor Abubakar ,we all have the moral obligation and responsibility to ensure that Nigeria Public University education is not rubbished.
The ASUU Bauchi zone Chairman alleged that the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) Ahmed Idris is the stumbling block to amicable resolution of the problem.
The Union therefore declared that, “enough is enough with the slippery posture of the Federal Government in resolving the problem”.
He said blame Federal Government for not being truthful in the quest to end the crisis declaring that,”The government is full of blame gaming rather than taking a definite stand in amicable resolution of the problem”
The Bauchi Zone Chairman pointed out that 95 % of Nigerians cannot afford the commercial private University Education for their sons and daughters .
“Unfortunately the government in Nigeria has drive and passion for privatization ,including that of tertiary education , having finished with primary and secondary education to which ASUU said NO,”
He noted that ASUU would not let the interest of the students and the masses constitute the parents and the development of the country.
Professor Abubakar however appealed to preserve and remain resolute for victory certainly is going to be for ASUU.
