ASUU tasks Buhari, state govs on good governance, rues excuses

Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, has sensationally declared that Nigerians want good governance in 2018, and not another year of blame game.

Omole in a statement in Ibadan on Sunday, while setting agenda for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2018, lamented that the ordinary Nigerians has sacrificed a lot for the nation by enduring various anti-poor policies imposed on them by the ruling class.

He thus charged the governments in the states and at the federal level to reciprocate by providing good leadership and invest consciously, transparently and heavily in the key sectors of the economy, especially education and energy where the masses can benefit.

While noting that Nigerians don’t want to hear of Cabal stories in 2018, Omole said President Buhari must confront corruption without border.

He lamented that shielding of the president’s men from corruption probe was a dangerous trend in 2017 which must not be replayed in 2018.

Omole, who noted that in Nigeria today government officials are not only corrupt but corruption was official, stated that what the masses expect in 2018 is good governance, not blame game.

He said: “The ordinary Nigerian has sacrificed a lot for this nation by enduring various anti-poor policies imposed on them by the ruling class. Governments at states and federal levels should reciprocate by providing good leadership and invest consciously, transparently and heavily in the key sector of the economic especially education and energy where the masses can benefit.

“Corruption should be confronted without border because in Nigeria today government officials are not only corrupt but corruption is official. What we expect is good governance, not blame game.”
