The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has declared that Nigerian political elites are more interested in positioning themselves ahead of the 2023 general elections.
ASUU explained that the political elites are not interested in fixing the problems in the education sector of the country, but are only interested in positioning themselves beyond 2023.
Chairman, University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU, Professor Ayo Akinwole made these disclosures on Thursday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Akinwole, who disclosed that though the government has resumed talks with the union, advised parents to join the union in getting their demands from the government.
He noted that only a virile public education system will give children of the masses a future in Nigeria.
Akinwole who spoke further insisted that the union has been justified in rejecting the IPPIS.
He added that IPPIS was alien to the university system.
He noted that, if the suspended Accountant-General of the Federation could allegedly divert N170 billion through the software, it shows that more frauds are endemic in the office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
â€œOur unionâ€™s earlier cry about the fraud in IPPIS has been vindicated by the revelations coming out from the office of the Accountant General of the Federation. More need to be done,â€
