Enough is enough keeping students at home, Buhari cautions ASUU
On Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari urged ASUU members to change their minds about the ongoing strike, declaring that “enough is enough.”
The strike was started by the union on February 14.
The strike would have long-term effects on families, the educational system, and the nation’s development, the president expressed concern.
Buhari made the call, according to Malam Garba Shehu, his media aide, when he hosted some governors, lawmakers, and political figures from the All Progressives Congress (APC) at his home in Daura, Katsina State.
The governors came to Daura to honour the president during Sallah.
Buhari pointed out that the strike had already had an impact on the psychology of teachers, parents, and other stakeholders, raising numerous moral questions that needed to be addressed.
He added that the standard of education in Nigeria would determine its future.
Additionally, he reaffirmed that although the government was aware of the union’s position, talks with students in classrooms should still go forward.
“We sincerely hope that ASUU will feel compassion for the workers on the protracted strike. The days of keeping students at home are genuinely over. For goodness sake, don’t hurt the next generation, he urged.
The president urged all well-meaning Nigerians, especially those close to ASUU leaders and members, to convince the lecturers to change their minds about their stance and its implications for the nation as a whole.
Buhari claims that the challenge for Nigerian students will be to compete with others in technologically advanced workplaces.
He claimed that keeping them at home would only deprive them of the time, opportunities, and opportunities to be relevant on the international stage.
“Colonial-style education was designed to produce government workers. These positions have been eliminated.
“Our youth should receive education to help them prepare for self-employment. Education is now pursued for its own sake.
“Technology has greatly increased our efficiency. He emphasised that we should encourage our kids to pursue education rather than just look for government jobs.
In order to increase employment opportunities, according to Buhari, resources should be directed more toward improving the infrastructure and operations of the health and educational sectors.
The President declared, “By this time next year, I would have gotten the most out of the two terms, and in the remaining months, I will do my best.”
He urged those in positions of power and privilege to exercise caution when assisting the numerous Nigerians who were looking for opportunities.
According to Buhari, “If you are greedy, you won’t look around to see what is happening with those who are less fortunate.”
The president admitted to his guests that the demands of his position had prevented him from visiting his home in Daura for nearly a year.
“The Emir of Daura, Dr. Faruk Umar Faruk, made the observation that I left my base at the Eid prayer site.
The last time I was in Daura was for Eid-el-Kabir in 2021, he said while holding the microphone, he reflected.
In contrast to Kaduna, where he has a better house, President Buhari stated that he would retire to Daura.
“I’ll be here in 10 to 11 months” (Daura). Though it is closer to Abuja, I have a better house in Kaduna,” he claimed.
The president explained that because of his hectic work schedule, he could relate to Geoffrey Onyema, the minister of foreign affairs, who had to spend most of his time away from his family.
He urged the APC leaders to continue their efforts for the benefit of the populace and the nation.
“We are fortunate people. H said, “We need to think more about where we are coming from.
According to the president, the government had accomplished a lot in many areas, particularly in infrastructure, given the resources at its disposal and in comparison to the previous administration.
I wish the best for the person coming after me,” he said.
In terms of security, the president claimed that the Northwest had presented more difficulties while the Northeast and the South-South had seen some success.
Additionally, Buhari warned South-South agitators to stop damaging national property, saying that doing so also had an impact on their livelihoods.
I can’t wait to leave. I can attest that it hasn’t been easy. He said, “I thank God that people recognise the personal sacrifices we have been making.
Abubakar Bagudu, the governor of Kebbi, who serves as the chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, thanked the president for his leadership in boosting the country’s economy and the numerous achievements of the APC in his remarks.
He cites two conventions that produced Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the party’s presidential candidate as examples of such successes.
“We’ll put in a lot of effort to make sure our party is a success. We have good reasons to put in a lot of effort, he insisted.
The vision of ensuring food production and prioritising agriculture was supported, he said, by favourable weather conditions, which were evident in the rice pyramids in different states.
“Our nation’s food production is still self-sufficient despite attacks by renegades. We have observed investments that didn’t exist prior to you (Buhari) assuming office.
There are now agriculture processing zones in at least 20 states. According to him, maize pyramids were revived in Katsina and Kano states while rice pyramids are present in the states of Ekiti, Gombe, and Niger.
He continued by noting the opening of more than 54 rice meals in various states as well as the renovation or construction of 57 fertiliser plants.
The governor told Buhari, “All these were accomplished because of your commitment and patriotism.
Bagudu praised the president for making it simple for governors and other political figures to communicate with him. He also noted that the National Economic Council’s opening for a more open exchange of ideas had a significant positive impact on the economy.
Aminu Masari of Katsina State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, Hope Uzodinma of Imo, Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa, and Abubakar Bello of Niger were the APC governors present at the meal.
Other governors included those of Kano State’s Abdullahi Ganduje, Ekiti’s Kayode Fayemi, the Plateau’s Simon Lalong, and Kebbi’s Abubakar Bagudu.
