(Photos) ASUU strike: See what Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu said in 2013

Prior to his appointment, the Minister of Education, Mallam
Adamu Adamu, advised the Academic Staff Union of
Universities (ASUU) not to call off its strike until the Federal
Government under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan did its
bidding in 2013.

Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission
(NHRC), Prof Chidi Odinkalu made this known in a tweet via his
Twitter handle on Saturday.
Adamu, who was appointed Education Minister by President
Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, last week urged ASUU to call of
its strike in the interest of the nation, a direct opposite of what
he said under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
administration five years ago.

Addressing a news conference last Monday, Adamu said, "I
want to use this opportunity to appeal to ASUU to put off this
strike in the name of the country, and in view of what the
situation is."
Odinkalu tweeted:
"This nation owes a debt of gratitude to ASUU and the strike
should not be called off until the government accepts to do and
does what is required. So, instead of hectoring ASUU to call off
its strike, the nation should be praying for more of its kind in
other sectors of the economy. – Adamu Adamu"
He tagged the tweet: "Those who do opposition politics like
they'll never be government, end up doing government like they
don't know what to do wth it."
