Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and the Federal government have been charged to demarcate politics from education, as this is a major challenge facing the sector.
A Professor of Chemistry from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Zaria, Aderemi Adedibu in an interview with Pensioners’ FM, gave the advice on the backdrop of the rolled over strike by ASUU, which was extended for another 12 weeks.
He said ASUU and the federal government must return to the round table for dialogue and negotiations to end the lingering strike.
“Federal and State government should call its academic board of trustees to negotiate with the striking lecturers, because they are responsible for their employment”
Professor Adedibu, said education is a key factor to national development, and must be restructured for the progress of the country.
“if the country must develop, the whole Education system must be overhauled”
Professor Adedibu, enjoyed both ASUU and the federal government to put sentiments aside, and treat the continuous strike as a matter of urgency, specially, in the interest of all Nigerian students, who have been protesting as a way of salvaging the situation.
