ASUU described the proposed university by the wife of the president, Mrs Aisha Buhari as a disaster and a joke taken too far.
The Chairman of ASUU, University of Ibadan chapter, Professor Deji Omole and a former National Treasurer of the Union, Professor Ademola Aremu Stated this in a separate interview with newsmen in Ibadan.
He further stated that the plan of the wife of the President to establish a new university confirmed why her Husband continued to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015. Omole said:
“When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far. If we have a president in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting president.
“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education”.
