The ASUU chairman, also belittles the Minister of education, Adamu Adamu, said there’s no difference between him and his boss, that he’s incapable of transforming the education sector.
The Minister of education had vowed to declare a state of emergency regarding the education but till date, no action has been made from him., Omole lamented.
He further tackles the Buhari administration and his minister said, they’ve spent more than three years in the office and all they do is to make empty promises and so many political statements but has never made fulfilled any.
He said Buhari administration is totally against education, by reducing the allocation budgeted on education.
