Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Afikpo, Rev. Paul Udogu has come out to say that the Federal government is playing politics with the future of Nigerian Youths and the education sector.

He recently revealed that this is the case because of its inability to resolve the ongoing strike involving Academic Staff Unions of Universities, ASUU till now.

According to him, it is time for the government to overhaul and reposition the education sector, because the current approach is obviously not working.

He added that the reality of crowded lecture rooms, no furniture for students, poor funds for research, and poor workers remuneration cannot be allowed to continue.

His words, “The introduction of Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) by the federal government is a good move to curb the issue of corruption and ‘ghost workers’ in our higher institutions but the irregularities and the deficiencies in the IPPIS have not helped matters, as ASUU advocate for University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

“Government should not play politics with our educational system. It is time for our government to overhaul our educational system and invest heavily in the sector”.

“Government should listen to the cry of ASUU. We also call on ASUU to suspend the indefinite strike for the sake of the Nigerian students and for the survival of our education system.

“We encourage ASUU to resume work while they dialogue more with the federal government to resolve the problem.

“Government should also resolve all anomalies in IPPIS and make it more efficient and effective while UTAS integrity test should be carried out immediately.”
