Metro ASUU's Proposed Solution to End Ongoing Strike is Unrealistic- Ezekwesili



Nigeria's former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili believes the solution tendered by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to resolve the ongoing strike it embarked on, is unrealistic given the current state of the economy.

Speaking on a Channels TV program, Ezekwesili said the issues that "ASUU raises concerning improving the university system are very germane to what you need to discuss in an economy and society like ours. I find the solutions, however, rather unrealistic".

“The reason that I maintained that the solutions proposed by ASUU are unrealistic is because I do not think that we have had the kind of conversations that would enable us to solve structural problems in a structural way.”

According to her funding is the tail end of the story.

"The key issues that you needed to deal with; you needed to discuss issues of governance and structure of the university system in the country in terms of partnership, in terms of participation in the tertiary education in the country", she said.
