The Academic Staff Union of University(ASUU) has lampooned President Muhammadu Buhari and wife, Aisha Buhari, over their plan to establish a private university which would be named ”Muhammadu University.”
Speaking to newsmen in Ibadan yesterday, the University of Ibadan chapter chairman, Professor Deji Omole, said both Buhari and wife are jokers.
He added that their intention shows that they do not have any belief in the public university system of the country.
“When I heard about the proposed private university to be named after Mr President, I just looked at it as a joke taken too far. If we have a president in a country that has simply refused to fund public education and all we get from the first family is to establish a private university in collaboration with some foreigners, it is a disaster for this country and for a sitting president.
“The implication is that Nigerians should know that this leadership does not believe in public funded education”.
