Special Assistant (SA) on Public Communications to Atiku Abubakar, Phrank Shaibu has stated that former President Goodluck Jonathan gave a free tutorial to the Federal Government (FG) on how it will tackle the issue of strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over seven months ago.
He noted during an interview that the ongoing strike poses a great danger to the country.
Shaibu said the lecturers should have obeyed court order by recalling the strike. If he were a lecturer, he would go to the class and cross his legs and watch the students. The government is only scratching the surface and has no capacity to resolve the crisis.
The issue of strike has been recurring but then it was better handled. Goodluck gave a free tutorial the other day on how to tackle it, Phrank said.
The danger is not about ASUU but the Nigerian public.
It is not about ASUU and there demands buy about the collapse of the educational system.
He laments on the great number of students seeking admission yearly but do not have access to education due to low capacity in the universities.
Some have to go to nearby country like Ghana and Benin where they contribute to the economy of the countries. Things are not working in Nigeria, he added.
