ASUU Looks to Regulate Foreign Education for Public Officers’ Wards

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, -ASUU has called for a bill to check how the children of public officers enroll in schools outside the shores of Nigeria.

Prof. Kingdom Tombra, the Chairman of the University of Niger Delta University Wilberforce Island chapter of the union, announced the solidarity protest organized by the Nigeria Labour Congress, -NLC on Tuesday in Yenagoa.

The NLC embarked on a nationwide protest in solidarity with the ASUU and other affiliate unions over the lingering industrial action in public universities in Nigeria.

“If this is done, it will build a better society by developing formidable educational institutions and improve funding of the university system in Nigeria.” Prof. Tombra had said. 

“This struggle is not against the government, but about the working class and against the ruling class and we are very committed to it. If the rich and poor go to the same university or institution, I don’t think the strike will occur again.”

Lecturers in government-owned universities commenced a nationwide strike on Feb. 14 over the adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution -UTAS as a payment system in the university sector.
