Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on Thursday, said the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is duty bound to compensate students for the time wasted during the six-month strike, not the Federal Government.
Adamu said the government will not yield to the union’s demand to pay lecturers their emoluments for the six months of no academic activities.
He explained that the affected students should “take ASUU to court” to claim damages incurred over the strike period.
The Education minister said this at the 47th Session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja.
According to him, the federal government bears no liability to compensate millions of students grounded for six months over lost time.
He also said if the students are determined to get compensated, they should sue ASUU.
