The presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has stated that the lingering dispute between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is about sincerity and accountability.
Kwankwaso made the announcement yesterday during the Arise Television presidential town hall series.
He stated that combating corruption in the education sector is critical to ensuring effectiveness.
“The whole ASUU issue boils down to sincerity, honesty and accountability. When I was governor, our State branches of ASUU excused themselves from the strike, due to our fair treatment of their schools. We’ll ensure everyone will get their salaries and allowances.
“Our administration believes that the best way to go is to invest as much as possible in Education. Corruption has to be tackled, as it’s the main problem. Tackling corruption in the sector will ensure effectiveness,” he said.
