A professor of Political Science at the University of Jos, Professor Mustapha Gimba, on Thursday, faulted the Federal Government for dragging the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to the industrial court and subsequently getting a judgement in its favour.

He said the Federal Government cannot whip and later intimidate lecturers into resuming classes, adding that lecturers have fundamental human rights that need to be respected.

Professor Gimba, a one-time political adviser in the office of the former President Goodluck Jonathan, noted that compelling matured men of integrity through a competent court of jurisdiction would not bring out the best in them; rather, a continuous half-baked brain that would not stand the test of time.

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has slammed Aisha Buhari for celebrating her daughter-in-law’s graduation from a university in the United Kingdom amid the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

According to HURIWA, it was insensitive and callous by the First Lady, adding that the president’s wife should apologise to Nigerian students, and parents.

HURIWA said Aisha Buhari was rubbing her daughter-in-law’s graduation from a university in the United Kingdom on the faces of helpless Nigerian university students who have been out of the classrooms for over seven months since members of ASUU embarked on strike on February 14, 2022, over the failure of the President Muhammadu Buhari government to cater for the welfare of lecturers of public universities.
