Crime Rate Is On The High Because Of A Lack Of Education – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Akure zone has come out to lament about poor funding of the education sector.

ASUU Akure Zonal Coordinator, Dr. Adeola Egbedokun recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the fact is that the government is insincere about funding education because successive administrations keep arranging several meetings where agreements are signed but never implemented.

He added that those creating insecurity in the country are doing so due to a lack of sufficient education.

His words, “The government is insincere about funding education. They are insincere because how can successive administrations arrange several meetings where agreements were signed and such agreements would not be implemented? What has taken us to this particular quagmire is that the government failed to own up to the agreements signed with ASUU.

At this point again, we have to talk about the 26% budgetary allocation which of course is the yardstick set by UNESCO. If the government is sincere, definitely government will definitely know that it is the only solution to the present problem that we find ourselves in.

Most of these people that are creating insecurity, the hoodlums, perhaps it was because they didn’t have sufficient education. If education had been properly funded, definitely there wouldn’t have been any need for agitation from members of staff because they would have been paid.

Presently as we talk some people are hiding in the bush looking for who to kidnap because the government has surreptitiously removed them from having education. Education happens to be the only saving grace for people to live a good life.

If this continues, we are talking about economic hardship, it won’t be a case of what ASUU is going to get, but it is going to be the case of what is going to be the next accident for the nation.”
