ASUU Strike Latest: My Three Children Are In Public Universities – Ngige

November 23, 2020

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Monday, insisted that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is committed to end the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities strike.

The former Governor denied the report that the federal government are behind the delay in the ongoing negotiations with the union because their children school abroad.

Ngige said,

“I have three biological children in public schools. They are in public schools; they are not in private universities. Unlike ASUU members who have most of their children in private universities, three of mine are here. So, I am a very big stakeholder in the public tertiary school system.”

The Minister during an interview on Arise TV said,


 “So, when ASUU says politicians don’t care because they have taken their children abroad, Chris Ngige cares because my children are not abroad even though they have dual nationality – two of them have American citizenship; they can be in America but I choose them to be here with me.”


“So, ASUU cannot accuse me of not being nationalistic enough. Anything that will help the university system here, I am in the forefront.”
