The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has spoken on how the government can reopen universities in one week.

The ASUU Chairman advised the government to put the same energy it put into getting the Aviation sector to work in Nigeria into the Educational sector.

Dr Edor J. Edor, the ASUU Chairman of the University of Calabar, also noted that if this is done, universities will reopen within one week,

Edor disclosed this in an interview with Daily Post newsmen.

According to Edor: “If government would put the same energy they put in the aviation sector into education, then schools would resume in the shortest possible time.”

“If government can put the same energy and commitment in the aviation sector that enable them and their children to travel to their schools abroad into Nigerian universities, then within one week, schools in Nigeria would reopen.”

Edor also accused the previous and present Nigerian governments of ignoring the country’s educational sector.

Speaking further, he maintained that Nigerian elites are not interested in the education of the common man.

“Not Buhari’s government alone, all successive regimes in Nigeria have ignored the education sector.”

“Even when we had a president who was himself a lecturer, things were not better. Successive regimes and the Nigerian elites have no interest in the education of Nigerians and the reason is simple, their children are not here.”

“They do not want the common man to be educated because education is power. Immediately the common man begins to know his or her right, these thieves and kleptomaniacs who find themselves in the position of power would become threatened because all Nigeria s would have known their right.”

“They are not interested in developing education, they are not,” he continued.
