The Ebonyi state governor, Martin Elechi, yesterday called for the disbandment of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU in the country.
The governor claimed that the union was sabotaging the government’s efforts in the education sector.
Elechi said this during an interactive session with members and executives of the state chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ.
He described ASUU’s action as a sabotage of the education sector and the corporate existence of country; stressing the need for the union to always consider the future of students while taking steps to contribute its quota towards the improvement of the education sector.
He said: “The major victims of this strike are not government but the students and things are not what they should be.
“ASUU is due for proscription; the way they are going is sabotage to the existence of the country. When I travelled I heard that lecturers had resumed in EBSU; my plan was that if any lecturer is to resume he or she is to renounce their membership of the union.
“At a point in time, history must change if not we will keep drifting; in EBSU, it is still a case of no work no pay.”
