“Do you know why I say that? I have been investing in education for the past 30 years. In nursery I started Primary, Secondary, University we have never gone on strike for even one day.

I want to pledge that I will work with university authorities and government to make sure we end this incessant strike by ASUU.
“This is because it is fundamental to your growth. It doesn’t matter whether you are in politics, whether you’re in business, in whatever sector you are. The fundamental right of every youth or every citizen is to be educated. And t.fore it is the responsibility of any responsible government to make sure that right is given to every Nigerian every youth in this country.”
