Nigerian Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, on Friday in Abuja called on the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) not to politicise the current strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). He said this while treating questions from journalists in his monthly news conference.
“My advice to APC is to bring a new policy argument that will be better than what we have at the moment rather than dragging politics into everything.
“Politicians aspiring to run for elective position should offer us alternative policies and not to undermine our efforts.
“I stand to be challenged, no government in the history of this country has put more money into education than the current government,’’ he said.
The minister however dismissed rumours that ASUU’s leadership collected money from opposition politicians to go on with the strike. He insisted the lecturers won’t sell their integrity.
He appealed to the union to consider government’s offer and end the strike in the interest of students and the development of the education sector.
