An international organization, Dollar Club Exclusive, has raised the alarm about the persistent crisis between the University Academic Staff Union and the Federal Government, which has stalled academic activities in Nigerian universities.

The association added that the strike that has lasted for about seven months has made the students forget what they were taught, as they have been at home doing nothing all this time.

Dollar Club Exclusive President and former NMA President Dr. Jerry Oguzie stated this Thursday in Uyo during a press conference honoring the association’s great commander, the late Judge Ime Umana.

Dr. Oguzie, however, called on the federal government to quickly address the problem so that students can return to school.

According to him, “we are concerned that ASUU has been on strike for the last six months. We are concerned that our children are no longer in school. We worry that our children are losing what they know. The GF should address the issue and stop playing politics with the lives of our children.

“Only in Nigeria will you know when you enter university without knowing when you will graduate. A course that is supposed to last four or six years will last between six and ten years due to constant strike action. And it is high time the government tackled this issue once and for all.

“So the question should be, how much does it take to solve ASUU? You can imagine how much has been spent on frivolity in this country. We recently read how dollars were discovered stacked in a room, rotten, in a part of this country, so what are we talking about?

On why ASUU has refused to change terrain and register with IPPIS as indicated by the FG, Dr. Oguzie said that only ASUU is in a position to know what is good for its members and emphasized that IPPIS would not save the country from alleged corruption.

However, he denounced the scarce funding in the education sector and added that the health sector in the country suffers the same fate.

“I am a doctor, and no one can speak better of health issues than health professionals, the same is the case with ASUU, no one can speak better of institutions than they.
ASUU knows what they want and not that the federal government tells them to go left or right, they know what they are asking for and the Federal Government should listen to them.

“But think about it, has IPPIS saved us from monumental corruption in the country? I hope the federal government will say, okay, give us one to five years or are already about to pay, but for the FG to stay on the ground and say move before we move, it is unacceptable. They should come to a negotiating table and solve the problem, we are not happy as a group ”. The president pointed.
