The University Academic Staff Union, ASUU, has said that the government should put the same energy that it put into making the aviation sector work in Nigeria in the education sector.

Dr. Edor J. Edor, ASUU President of the University of Calabar, said the universities would reopen in a week, if the same energy invested in the aviation sector is extended to Nigeria’s education sector.

Edor revealed this in an interview with DAILY POST.

According to Edor: “If the government put the same energy into education as it did in the aviation sector, schools would resume in the shortest time possible.

“If the government can put the same energy and commitment into the aviation sector that allows them and their children to travel to their schools abroad to Nigerian universities, in a week, schools in Nigeria would reopen.”

Edor accused current and former Nigerian governments of ignoring the country’s education sector.

He argued that Nigerian elites are not interested in the education of the common man.

“Not just the Buhari government, all successive regimes in Nigeria have ignored the education sector.

“Even when we had a president who was himself a speaker, things didn’t go any better. Successive Nigerian regimes and elites have no interest in the education of Nigerians and the reason is simple, their children are not here.

“They don’t want the common man to be educated because education is power. Immediately the common man begins to know his right, these thieves and kleptomaniacs who are in the position of power would be threatened because all Nigerians would have known their right.

“They are not interested in developing education, they are not,” he added.
