Strike: ASUU Chairman Questions Why Education Minister, Nwajiuba Have Not Been Arrested

Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, the National Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has chastised Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, the Minister of State for Education, for entering the presidential campaign in 2023 despite the country’s educational issues.

In a normal country, the Minister should have been apprehended and questioned by security operatives about how he obtained the sum of $100 million to acquire the All Progressives Congress presidential forms, according to the ASUU Chairman (APC).

According to Osodeke, Nwajiuba’s inability to handle the problems of his own Ministry (education) alone makes him question how he intends to solve the problems of the entire country.

He also called out the government for failing to meet the demands of ASUU, adding that the government should be blamed for the strike.

“In a normal clime, a minister should have been invited by security to show how he raised ₦100 million and if he had paid tax for such an amount. But we are in a country where anything goes; it sounds somehow that he can’t solve the problem in his ministry but wants to rule a country; that tells a lot.

“For us, it’s not about one person but the government; we should not personalize it. ASUU is on strike because the government could not meet its demands and not about an individual,” Osodeke said in a chat with Daily Post.

The ASUU Chairman also said Nigerians should not vote people who have by previous actions, demonstrated that they can’t lead this country.

Osodeke urged Nigerians to stand up during the 2023 elections and vote for people who believe in Nigeria into power.

He said: “That’s what we have been saying all along. Have you seen any governor building primary or secondary schools lately? But they want to build a university to win elections and when they can’t fund it.

“Nwajuiba and co are just raising money for campaigns; it’s a very sad development for the country, and we expect all Nigerians to rise up during this election and vote for people who can run this country, people who live here and go to hospitals here; those are the kind of people we should be looking out for.
