ASUU Strike: NANS Demands Immediate Sack of Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu following his inability to resolve the issue between the government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU within the two weeks ultimatum issued by the President Malam.

President Buhari had on July 19, 2022 gave Adamu a two wee-ultimatum to resolve the ASUU strike and ensure students return to their respective campuses.

While the ultimatum elapsed without any positive result, ASUU also extended the strike by another four weeks.

But, reacting to the development in a press statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday, NANS president, Comrade Sunday Asefon, said it was abundantly clear that the Minister of Education lacked the capacity required to manage such an important ministry as the Ministry of Education.

“He has shown over the years his lack of capacity, know-how, and adequate understanding of the complexity of educational management.

“This development calls to question his qualification to be appointed as minister of education in the first place. His total lack of compassion and empathy for the plight of Nigerian students speak volumes.

“Since he became minister ASUU has gone on strike for almost 18 months cumulatively and the entire educational structure of our tertiary education system is in total shamble under his watch.

“It is therefore imperative to call on the President to immediately relieve him of his duty in the ministry and bring in a more competent hand, educated, experienced, physically fit, and willing enough to begin the process of salvaging the debris of the collapse of education system in Nigeria with the hope of rebuilding it,” he said.

The students body further
said it will leave no stone unturned to ensure that their demands are acceded to.

“We will do all that is required to reawaken the spirit of the Ali-Must-Go to ensure that Adamu-Must Go.

“The nation and well-meaning Nigerians must prevail on the government to fire the minister as this will serve as the only good radiance to the bad rubbish we have witnessed under his leadership of the ministry,” the statement added.
