Osodeke tells FG that plans to ban ASUU will undoubtedly fail and that Ngige is a f**l.



Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, the National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has urged the Federal Government and its representatives, including Labour Minister Chris Ngige, to abandon all plans to prohibit the union.
He says that the academic union’s philosophy is based on a good path for the country’s education sector and its positive multiplier effects on every other part of the country. He also says that the plans to ban the union won’t work.
According to Akahi News, the president of the ASUU made this declaration while delivering a message of goodwill at the special commemorative event that was held in Ogun state by the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) Ago Iwoye chapter of the union to honor Professor Ganiyu Olatunde, the institution’s immediate past vice Chancellor.
Osodeke said that it’s unfortunate that the Federal Government always envies the union for setting high-quality and long-lasting standards in the areas of infrastructure and services, even though the education sector doesn’t get enough money.
He went on to say that Ngige was a prankster for trying to ban ASUU during the eight-month strike.
I can understand why Ngige is interested in banning the ASUU because, once the union is banned, all of its assets automatically become the property of the federal government. This is true even when the government lacks the ideas to implement high-quality assets despite having sufficient funds at its disposal, as was the case at the University of Ibadan, UniPort, and the University of Maiduguri, among other places.
The president of the ASUU went on to say, “You will never succeed in banning ASUU because ours is a union that evaluates the system and aligns with the worthy course without being biased for the advancement of the Nigerian educational society.”
However, he cautioned Vice Chancellors of public universities against conceiving of themselves as Chief Executive Officers (C.E.Os) of universities when, in fact, they are only second-tier academics.
