The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Emmanuel Osodeke, has lamented that the government has abandoned education, vowing that the union will soon sponsor a bill at the National Assembly making it mandatory for public officials to train their children in Nigerian public schools.

 

He said that Nigerian leaders had killed local education and looked for other countries to send their children to study.

 

Osodeke said ASUU would mobilise Nigerians to march to the National Assembly to demand that the bill be passed for all elected public officers to send their children to Nigerian public schools.

 

Osodeke stated this in his speech at a one-day ‘state of the nation summit’ organised by the Bauchi zone of the union with the theme, ‘Nigeria: The state of the nation’ was held at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi on Thursday.

 

He said, “Today, the leaders of this country and those who control our wealth have completely abandoned education. Today, this country is reaping the work of our abandoning education and what do they do as an alternative?

 

“They have created avenue for themselves in such a way that having abandoned and killed our education, they look for somewhere else where people invested in education to send their children, their wards and relations.

 

“That is where we are and as a union, we are having one proposition we have put forward. I have asked the committee on ICT to work on it. We are going to storm the National Assembly with a bill which will be titled: ‘bring back your children’.

 

 “We are going to mobilise the students, the NGOs and all of us will storm the National Assembly and we will ensure that that bill is passed.

 

“When you get our resources, your children must be in Nigerian schools whether it is primary, secondary or tertiary institutions.

 

“I’m sure if all the children of all these our so-called people are in this country, our education will not be where it is today; they will pay attention to it.”

 

According to him, the insecurity being faced across the country is as a result of abandoning education by the leaders.
