  Read full Details below;



It is about two decades I graduated from university and ASUU has been on strike almost every year. More than 20 years before I entered university it was like that. Now, my children are entering university and experiencing the same problem. What guarantees that my grand children will not experience the same?

ASUU Impact on Education and Way Out


    When you continue to apply the same methodology to solve a problem and doesn’t yield desired results, do you continue the same or device other means? Our lecturers, I mean members of ASUU said using same method at all time will not yield different results. Why is ASUU using same methodology of partial or total strike that renders students and parents devastated for past four decades when the result is the same with no tangible response from government?


Impact of ASUU Strike and It's Effects?

  Does ASUU consider the financial, social and psychological effects of perennial strikes on students and parents? Programs of 4 or 5 years turn out to 6 or 7 years leading to more spending’s on the part of parents. 

    What of the social effects; some become influenced negatively to become social miscreants due to idleness created by strikes, some take to drugs, some ladies take to prostitution. 

   Some ladies become pregnant and mothers. This is how some ladies couldn’t continue their university education. We also have cases of boys becoming fathers along the line. We have cases of losing students on accident while going home or returning to schools during strikes. 

  What can replace the loss of dear souls to hopeful parents?

Can there be comprehensive knowledge acquisition by students due to various interruptions during learning process? Can we actually give a proper assessment to students who have been home for several months without learning anything?


Is the quality of education still guaranteed?

Can we comfortably say that we are producing quality graduates for the past forty years due to ASUU strikes to press for university needs from FG?

  ASUU is saying that the university education is underfunded by the FG. This is very true with the decay going on in terms of equipping the human resources; lecturers and non academic staffs and most importantly the structures and its contents to aid teaching and research.


How do we get out of this quagmire?

Education does not start from university it starts from primary to secondary before university level. 

What is the state of our public primary/secondary schools? NUT had gone on strikes several times for improvement, but is there any remarkable change? 

With the growing population, can public primary and secondary schools be sufficient for all the citizens?

   Between university education and primary/secondary school education, which one is more important to be affordable, accessible and compulsory for all citizens? 

We will all agree that the basic or fundamental levels of education require attention of all… Government, ASUU, NUT, NLC, NGOs, etc.  

However, it is pertinent to note that most of the elites including the ASUU, NUT have moved on facing realities on ground by taking their children to private primary and secondary schools.

Most teachers in public primary and secondary schools don’t have their children in public schools.

    Apart from the need for government to provide the necessary structures, the level of dedication to work by public teachers has diminished. Whereas, private teachers that earn less than most public teachers show more dedication and better output than their public counterparts and this is the reason why many of them send their children to private schools in the first instance.

The summary is that the insatiable minds is not only resident in people in government it cuts across all levels including our teachers and lecturers.


The Elites have all left fighting for Quality Education..

   The elites have all left fighting for quality education at primary and secondary schools because they have gotten alternatives for themselves. The public schools is being attended by children of the poor. This is where we all get it wrong. However, if the best quality basic education is acquired by students they can pick up life effectively at any level… university, polytechnic, colleges of education, technical schools, skill acquisition centers, ICT centers etc.


The mentality that every child must go to university is fundamentally wrong. 

A lot of our students go to university to obtain certificates without bothering on utilization of knowledge acquired relevant to course of study. 

Instead of producing quality graduates that will create jobs, we end up with job seekers with low efficiency.

  University education must attract best students in order to produce the best graduates who can solve societal problems. The quality of our products says a lot about training. ASUU members or products become Minister of education, policy makers and politicians whom we engage for better funding and who have refused to yield to our plights. It is a vicious circle without end result soon. 

  Saying strike is the only language the government understand is an obsolete statement.


    This is irrelevant to the government over the years. It is not on the priority lists of government. FG is giving approval to more private and public universities year in year out. The signal giving is that each university should find means to survive. Government has become irresponsible parents who continue to procreate without thinking of responsibilities attached. Should the born children continue to lament or be proactive in tackling their challenges?

Let’s face reality just as many have done with primary/secondary schools.

The opportunity cost of spending 6 or 7 years in university or spending 3 or 4 years of normal duration with higher fees should be weighed. 

Let the university be autonomous financially but to be subsidized by government. Nigeria has gone beyond fully funded university education when the university was just 10 with free meal for students when the population was about 60 million.

    Now, with level of awareness  among the citizens, with population of above 200million, with 43 FG universities and 48 state government universities, thinking of fully funded university education at this stage of our lives is tantamount to mirage. 

    Parents should buckle up to pay more, grants, scholarships and loan should be encouraged to brilliant but indigent students. This is the reality we must face to move on.


Citing three Examples of Institutions running Uninterrupted Academic Calendar

I will cite three examples apart from private universities that are running uninterrupted academic calendar. Osun state university started with funds from each local government, today the university is operating smoothly without support from any arm of the government. The charges vary based on course of study. The average annual school fees is not more than what many of our elites pay per annum in average private secondary schools around.

   National Open University was established during Obasanjo, today it has the largest student population. No strike since inception and the payment is per unit course with flexibilities that make it attractive to many working class. Today, many young students constitute the majority.

   First Technical university Ibadan was established about 6 years ago running  smoothly without any itch since inception. The school fees is about half of what is obtainable in many private universities. One spectacular thing about the university is that it attracts best students from public schools. The law establishing the university made it mandatory for each local government to give full scholarship to at least 5 students in public schools(( *no private school involved* ) every session with the exam conducted by the university. During the last graduation ceremony, most of the first class honors are students on scholarship from public schools. 


ASUU should stop using the same style fighting the insensitive government and expect victory one day. The elites including ASUU must all go back to drawing board to fight the government to provide qualitative free and compulsory education at all levels in primary and secondary schools throughout the country. If we can’t ensure this, no need to keep on fighting at higher level…. University. Youruba will say that “O fi ete sile o wa npa lapalapa” … meaning “leaving leprosy to treat dandruff”. 

Which is more important?

ASUU Strike and Federal Government: Does Government Understand STRIKE any Longer? (Featured)

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has recently embarked on another academic strike. If there's anything that is ever constant in the Academic Calendar of Nigerian Universities, it is ASUU Strike which usually occurs during clashes with the Federal Government over Funding and among other things.


     This is not only frustrating but had also been discouraging a lot of students from pursuing academics. If you are one of the students who have been affected by the Industrial Action taken by ASUU, here are some 7 Things we recommend you should do

what students can do during ASUU Strike

1. READ

    During the school academic period; there is usually little to no time to further read due to because there's always one lecture or practical to do. Students can however use this period of ASUU Strike to further read and cover the topics they have missed in their class.

👉 Browse and Download READING MATERIALS for your Department Here

 

     However, Reading shouldn't be limited to your normal conventional books (i mean formal education books). Students are advised to read books outside their academic field such as Self-Help or Business Books (for entrepreneur mind).

     In our next article on FutaNewsandGist; we will be sharing some books you should read during the Holiday (books outside academic). You can like our Facebook Page or subscribe via the box at the end of this article to know when the post is out.

2. LEARN New Skills

  If you want to stand out and survive in today's world, you'll need to have a skill. However, if you haven't; it is never too later to start learning one. You can try to learn Google Digital Skills if you want to know more about gaining a social presence to boost your business sales and social media marketing.
    And for those who have an interest in learning programming language; whether it is to build a Mobile App, to build a Software, to Build a Website or to learn about Artificial Intelligence + Data Science; you can start learning one.

3. Implement What You've Already Learnt

  Sometimes it is not the fact that we haven't learned enough but that we haven't implemented what we have already learned. If you already have skills or knowledge of any kind, perhaps this is your chance to put it into action.

    For instance; if you are a mobile programmer, you can use this period to work on your prototype and code your android or iOS app. If you are also an entrepreneur with offline skills, you can use this period to create/build your products and let people know about them.


    Students from some departments can also form a group to build a solution using the knowledge they have been learning in the past times.

4. Volunteer to Participate in Causes

  Most Non-Profit Governmental Organizations often participate in humanity cause to help uplift people and make them feel better. You can also look around your environment and participate in some NGOs causes.

     However, if you can't find one; you can also create one as long as it is for making the community a better place. It could be as helping the older people, keeping the community clean, teaching people what you know and etc.

5. Travel

    Travelling not only help us learn more about other cultures and tribes but also we get to explore some wonderful places on earth. You can decide to travel for recreational purposes, for research purposes or for visitation purposes.

    Recreational Travel can be such as traveling to the Idanre Hill in Ondo State - or maybe some other places. Whether you choose a City or Village as your place of recreational Travel, it all boils down to your taste.

   Research Purposes can be in the case of a Student studying Ecotourism and Wildlife Management (EWM); you can decide to travel to another place for adventure to discover more exciting wild animals and their lifestyle.


While Travel for Visitation Purposes could be Travelling to visit your loved ones and spend time with them. Since Human beings are social animals, the closer we are to our loved ones, the better we feel.

6. Learn a New Language

  In a previous article we wrote on After the End of a Semester, Now What? || We talked about how Students can maximize the end of a semester break to do new things and one of those things is to learn a new language.

   Also during this ASUU Strike, you can pick up a new language and decide to learn it. Learning a Language has a lot of benefits which include access to more opportunities and increasing your IQ.

 REST

Finally at the end of this article; we will not forget to mention that REST is also more important. When preparing for a new semester; it is highly recommended Students should watch out for their Health and if they notice something is about to go wrong somewhere, they should quickly take action.

   Sometimes we focus too much on work so much that we neglect our health and this could take a big toll on us. During this ASUU Strike; you can use it to REST and take a break for all the stressful activities you have been going since school had resumed.

  It is a one-year (12months) youth empowerment Programme. It is a partnership initiative between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).


Why Nigeria Jubilee Fellowship Program (NJFP) ?


While Other programs and initiatives tend to require some sort of advanced requirement from applicants or lower the entry bar in terms of the kind of opportunities that are available. 
    NJFP does the opposite by inviting qualified applicants across a level playing field without compromising the pedigree of organizations that will play host to successful Fellows.

The programme will serve all of Nigeria – from North to South and East to West – ensuring that organisations and youth from all corners of the country can participate.
