ASUU demands are valid — Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday said in Ibadan, Oyo State that the agitation by the Academic Staff Union of Universities for improved welfare, infrastructure, funding and other contentious issues affecting the nation’s universities were genuine.

Buhari, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the 70th Foundation Day ceremony and award of certificates to the PhD graduands and honorary doctoral degree awards to some notable Nigerians by the University of Ibadan, however, said the government could not do it alone. He called for alternative sources of funding education.

The celebration peaked with the conferment of honorary doctoral awards on six Nigerian: Chief Bode Akindele; Prof.(Mrs.) Bolanle Awe;  Prof. Grace Alele-Williams, Mrs Olufunmilayo Olopade, Prof. Akinlawon Mabogunje, and Prof. Omoniyi Adewoye.

Buhari agreed that the nation’s education was underfunded but regretted that the Federal Government could not meet all the demands of the lecturers.

He therefore called on the authorities of various institutions to explore other sources of fund to meet their demands.
