ASUU boasts of fostering continued existence of public universities in Nigeria


University lecturers under the umbrella of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have boasted that they are the reason public universities are still in existence.

The lecturers claimed that, if not for their strong insistence on a better system, the public university system would have collapsed long ago, saying government never showed interest and commitment to the cause of quality public university education system.

ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who was a guest on a Television programme, on Monday made reference to infrastructural transformation being experienced in public universities due to the intervention of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).
