ASUU Strike: Festus Keyamo calls Education ‘Big Burden’ to Govt

The Minister Of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has explained the stance of the Federal Government on the long-term embarked strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

According to the Minister, Education is a critical component in the country’s affairs but the burden is way too much.

Keyamo alleged that there are other pressing issues for the country to face which makes the 1.1 trillion money demanded by ASUU an unimaginable one for the Government.

He highlighted the problem that the government will be facing in 2023 saying: ”In 2023, the total income or Government will be about 6.1 trillion, Subsidy alone will gulp 6.3 trillion.

“In other words, Subsidies will be more than the income of the Federal Government in 2022.

“So where do we go from here? We have only one component, Education placing this kind of burden on the Federal purse is not just possible”

The minister appealed to Nigerians to beg Asuu to return to classes while the Government reaches a logical conclusion in terms of the agreement to meet their demands.
