ASUU must compensate students for wasted time – Minister of Education
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu has said that the Academic Staff Union of Universities should compensate students for the time wasted during the six-month strike, not the Federal Government.
Punch reported that the Minister who said the government would not concede to the union’s demand to pay lecturers their payments for the six months of no academic activities in his speech at the 47th Session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organized by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, further asked affected students to “take ASUU to court” to claim damages incurred over the strike period.
Adamu insisted that the federal government bears no liability to compensate millions of students grounded for six months over lost time.
He also said if the students are determined to get compensated, they should take ASUU to court.
