PROCEEDS FROM NOMINATION FORMS CAN MEET ASUU’S DEMANDS –PDP PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANT,PETER OBI SPEAKS

A presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Anambra State Governor, Mr Peter Obi, on Wednesday said the money realised from the sales of nomination forms of political parties was enough to meet some of the demands of the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities.

He regretted that politicians are campaigning for 2023 while students are stranded at home.

Obi said this on Wednesday while responding to a question from a student when he appeared at a popular Abuja-based human rights Radio and Television station, Berekete Family.

The former governor said he found it disheartening that the noise of 2023 was dominating the space rather than the plight of Nigerian students wasting at home and being exposed to all kinds of danger.

Obi said, “The N40m and N100m that is being collected for forms from presidential aspirants from the two leading political parties is enough to meet some demands of ASUU.

“The genesis of the ASUU strike is in the inability of the government to keep agreements and that stems from the value we place on education which should be the biggest investment.”

“If elected, I will start by cutting off excess wastages that are prevalent in the system as I did when I was governor of Anambra state and was able to achieve much without owing and having more to invest,” he saidssuu
