“A Joke Gone Too Far” – ASUU Blasts Aisha Buhari Over Plans To Name Private University After The President

Omole said her plan confirmed why her husband has continued to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015.

The University of Ibadan chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has blasted Aisha Buhari over her proposed plan to establish a private university that will be named after her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari.

During a town hall meeting in Yola over the weekend, Aisha Buhari had announced her plan to establish a private university to be named after President Buhari.

However, Professor Deji Omole, the Chairman of ASUU UI, while speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, condemned her plan and described it as a disaster.

Omole said her proposed university plan confirmed why her husband has continued to reduce budgetary allocation to education since he assumed office in 2015.

“When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far.

“If we have a President in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting President.

“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education.”
