FG Urges ASUU Members To Go Into Farming

By Muyiwa Adekojede

The Minister of State for Education, Mr. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)members to opt for farming when he appeared as a guest on ARISE NEWS Channel, on Monday.

Speaking on the lengthy ASUU strike, Mr. Nwajiuba said that ASUU members should leave the teaching profession and consider venturing in farming and that the country needs more farmers now.

He explained that the federal government has expressed great commitment to ASUU demands and that FG has paid all academic staff salaries up till July 2020.

He also acknowledged that the union has the right to express to make demands.

“ASUU is within its rights as a union of lecturers. We didn’t start a strike with ASUU on the basis of COVID-19. ASUU was already on strike way before COVID-19. Just before COVID-19 will shut down schools, they gave an indefinite strike. We are not in any contention with them.

“Government is actually not holding anyone to ransom. It says this is how I want to pay and it has to be through IPPIS. You can leave the employment. You can opt out of it and say ‘I no longer want to teach’. You can find other professions. What we need now are probably more farmers.”

“You cannot keep forcing your employer and tell him, ‘I will like you to pay me my money through my pillow. Or, I will like you to pay it through this mailbox’. ASUU has a lot of complaints and dissipation around it. That is legitimate but doesn’t mean you should force yourself on the man who has the money.”
