The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has called for the sack of Minister of State for Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike over his alleged involvement in the political crisis in Rivers State, which the union said has prevented him from finding solutions to the lingering crisis in the universities.

The Coordinator of ASUU, Ilorin Zone, Dr. Adeleke Ayan, regretted that instead of Wike to be concerned about the nationwide strike and various crises bedeviling Nigerian universities, he is bogged down with local Rivers politics.

Ayan, Chairman of ASUU in Ekiti State University (EKSU), was speaking at a press conference Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, where he said it was lamentable that the minister had abandoned crucial national issues like ASUU strike and started indulging in local politics.

He called for immediate release of the N100 billion the government promised to turn around the country’s Ivory Towers around, saying “a lot of restoration will take place if the money is released in our universities”.

According to him, “The involvement of Minister of State for Education in Rivers State crisis is an example of reckless abandonment of serious national issue for pecuniary pursuit.

“The Ilorin Zone grossly condemns this roving minister and calls for his immediate removal”.
