ASUU strike: Money spent on politics can meet lecturers’ demands – Shehu Sani


Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has suggested a way to end the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Sani said money spent on politics in Nigeria can easily meet the demands of ASUU.

ASUU had been on strike since February 2022 over the Federal Government’s inability to meet a 2019 agreement.

The Federal Government had refused to allow ASUU to use their own generated payment platform, University Transparency Accountability Solution, UTAS, among other demands.

Amid the prolonged strike, President Muhammadu Buhari had urged ASUU to call off its industrial action.

In a statement issued by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, Buhari had said “truly, enough is enough” for keeping Nigerian students at home.

Reacting, Sani tweeted: “If you can calculate what is spent on politics,you will realise that this country can easily afford to meet the financial demands of ASUU with regards to our public university system.”
