ASUU strike: Arewa youths attack Buhari, says it’s senseless to vote president

The Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, has lambasted the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

 

Speaking with DAILY POST, AYCF President General, Yerima Shettima described the Buhari-led Federal Government as “insensitive,” following the refusal to meet the demands of ASUU.

The ongoing ASUU strike which commenced on November 4, 2018, still lingers due to the inability of the Federal Government to meet the demands of the aggrieved lecturers.

Reacting, Shettima lamented that the Buhari-administration has downplayed the educational sector and the future of the younger generation.

Against this backdrop, the AYCF President General urged Nigerians to vote against the Buhari in the forthcoming presidential election.

According to Shettima: “This government is very insensitive, no matter what, we can’t downplay our educational sector, we can’t joke with the education of our younger generation and is exactly what this government is doing and it’s a clear indication that they don’t wish this country well.

“If this administration is allowed to continue owing to the fact that they don’t have value for our educational system then the future of this country will be doomed and as such, Nigerians are left with a choice which to look for an alternative.

“I can’t imagine that anyone in his right senses would think of voting this government back into power with what is in play now. Nigerians must rise up to the occasion and discharge our civic responsibility by going for an alternative in 2019. This cannot be allowed to continue, if I see somebody talking of voting this government again I start imagining if they are normal.

“I think every normal human being should know that we have a problem in the educational sector and that is the least area you should joke with, no matter how you try to play politics. Our educational policy must not be joked with, that’s where the future of this country lies.”
