This was contained in a statement issued by the Senator on Wednesday, 27th July, 2022.
The statement reads below;
“I appeal to president Muhammadu Buhari to put more pressure on his Ministers and get the students back to class . ASUU should also make the negotiation easier . A lot of people from my constituency are out of school due to the ongoing strike . They have been on me and it gets me more worried.”
He also said ”I am only a legislator and my powers are limited . When I was Governor, I never for once allowed the schools in Abia go on strike.”
In conclusion he said ”life is about negotiation and I believe that Federal Government and ASUU can end this strike today”
Nothing derails a country like lack of Education ; it’s worse than insecurity.
