The Ongoing Strike will Continue until Till Government gets Money - - Prof. Okolie

Asuu Strike conitinues
The Academic Staff Union of Universities will sustain its ongoing strike until the Federal Government gets the money to meet its demands, an ex-official  member has said.

The immediate past chairman of the union at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Prof. Aloysius Okolie ;

He said:

The National Assembly and some executive members are paid jumbo salaries but when it comes to education funding the government has no money. 
How will the country be able to achieve its vision 20:2020 of being among the 20 leading economies if the education sector is not well-funded. It is unreliable that in some universities student receive lectures under the trees and in stadium. Books, laboratory equipment in our libraries and laboratories are outdated while some politicians and government officials are wasting money in building houses in every state capital and buying fleets of exotic cars. 
The demands will enable the universities to produce quality graduates employable in any part of the world.
