ASUU :  Remove Education Minister Now – NANS tells Buhari 

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called for the immediate removal of the Minister of Education,Mallam Adamu  Adamu over his failure to resolve the lingering industrial action by the Adademic Staff Union  of Universities (ASUU )
The NANS’s President ,Asefon Adedayo Sunday in a statement on Wednesday  argued that since the two weeks ultimatum given by President Muhammadu Buhari  to the minister to end the logjam had ended without any success, the minister has no business presiding over the Education Ministry.
” Since he became minister ASUU has gone on strike for almost 18 months cumulatively and the entire educational structure of our tertiary education system is in total shamble under his watch. It is therefore imperative to call on the President to immediately relieve him of his duty in the ministry and bring in a more competent hand, educated, experienced, physically fit, and willing enough to begin the process of salvaging the debris of the collapse of education system in Nigeria with the hope of rebuilding it.
“You will recall that President Gen. Muhammadu Buhari on the 19th of July, 2022 gave the Minister of Education Malam Adamu Adamu two weeks ultimatum to resolve the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities to ensure that students return to classes. You will also recall while this ultimatum subsist ASUU extended the strike by another four weeks.” the statement reads in part.
” It is therefore abundantly clear that the Minister of Education lacks the capacity required to manage such an important ministry as the Ministry of Education.
He has shown over the years his lack of capacity, know-how, and adequate understanding of the complexity of educational management. This development calls to question his qualification to be appointed as minister of education in the first place. His total lack of compassion and empathy for the plight of Nigerian students speak volumes.
NANS under our leadership will leave no stone unturned to ensure that our demands are acceded to, as we will do all that is required to reawaken the spirit of the Ali-Must-Go to ensure that Adamu-Must Go.
” The nation and well-meaning Nigerians must prevail on the government to fire the minister as this will serve as the only good radiance to the bad rubbish we have witnessed under his leadership of the ministry.” the statement said .
