ASUU calls for state of emergency

11:50 AM

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has renewed the call for the declaration of a state of emergency in the education sector.

The call came on the heels of the death of the Senate President of National Association of Nigerian Students and four other officials of NANS in a ghastly motor accident last week in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

In a statement by its President, Dr. Nasir Isa, the union said the fate that befell the five NANS  officials  called for the declaration of emergency in the entire education sector by the Federal Government.

The union also urged  students to step up their activism by re-opening the issues bordering on compelling  government to increase its annual budgetary allocation to at least 26 per cent, revival of the education bank and job creation for teeming unemployed graduates.

Nasir said, “ASUU invites the students’ movement to reopen the issues: uncommercialised education with access to all, especially the children of the underprivileged, allocation of at least 26 per cent yearly budgets to education, declaration of emergency in the whole education system.

“There is the  need for the revitalisation of the university system on the basis of the scientifically sound Needs Assessment, the restoration of the once-virile education bank and the creation of jobs for the teeming unemployed graduates”.
