ABUJA – THE Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Tuesday lamented that the present administration in the country has traumatised and pauperised the Nigerian people.
The union said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s economic policies which it claimed was imposed by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, IMF and their collaborators had become hostile to the people in the last few months, while the enthusiasm that greeted the entry of the government was gradually giving away to the realism that “we may be losing the war to rescue our people from the ruling class extortionist agenda.”
Addressing journalists in Abuja yesterday, the National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi described as a monumental fraud the call for the sale of national assets, saying operators of the economy must be held responsible by the Nigerian people.
He said that the economic policies of the Buhari government was impacting negatively on all sectors of the economy and he urged Nigerians to organise themselves to reject the policies that claimed had pauperized the people and consolidate the gains of the ruling class.
