The Senator representing Bayelsa East Senatorial District Ben Murray-Bruces has suggested to federal and state governments how to continuous strikes in Nigeria’s Public universities.
Murray-Bruce, who posted a video on his twitter handle to make his point said that federal and state governments should privatise universities they own. This he said, will bring genuine investors and bring an end to the incessant strikes.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (Asuu) had embarked on nationwide strike over unfulfilled past agreements by government and under-funding of education. It is the latest of series of strikes that the union had embarked in recent years over poor financing of the universities.
