“We can’t borrow because of ASUU, Parents should go and beg ASUU” –  Festus Keyamo advises Nigerian parents.

“We can’t borrow because of ASUU, Parents should go and beg ASUU” –  Festus Keyamo advises Nigerian parents.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, slammed the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Friday for making outrageous demands in its dispute with the Federal Government.

This statement was made while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

“Should we go and borrow to pay N1.2 trillion yearly? You cannot allow one sector of the economy to hold you by the jugular and then blackmail you to go and borrow N1.2 trillion for overheads when our total income would be about N6.1 trillion. And you have roads to build, health centres to build, other sectors to take care of.”

He further asked parents across the country to beg ASUU. “Like the President said the other time, those who know them, appeal to their sense of patriotism.

Everyone is affected by the current situation. Nigerians should urge ASUU to return to class. Parents should beg the Union as well. It’s gotten to that point. “The strike is unnecessary,” he said.

Remember that the union went on strike for 30 days on February 14 in response to the federal government’s failure to honor agreements signed by both parties. ASUU demands include, among other things, the revitalization of public universities, the payment of earned academic allowances, and the implementation of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) for the payment of university lecturers’ salaries. On Monday, the union announced another 30-day strike, the fourth since the strike began about six months ago.
