Appoint Competent Professional As Education Minister, ASUU Urges Tinubu

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has advised President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to appoint only competent leaders in Education sector and a competent professional as minister of education.  

The union said Nigeria as a country cannot again afford to put a non-competent person in charge of the education ministry if the country is truly ready to achieve meaningful economic progress.

The National President of the Union, Emmanuel Osodeke, gave the advice in an interview, listing some qualities such an individual would need to possess.

He said there are lots of issues ranging from poor funding, decaying infrastructures, poor remuneration and welfare, libraries, laboratories and so forth that need to be fixed in public schools.

He said only somebody who is competent and an expert, who also understands the sector and its great value to the economy is fit for the job.

He said such a person must be innovative and also be patriotic and believes in Nigeria’s educational system by ensuring that their direct family members either as children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren are studying in Nigerian public schools at least during their tenure of office.

He said it would be unwise for Tinubu to appoint a minister whose direct family members are studying abroad.
