ASUU STRIKE: Buhari Is Playing With Country’s Educational System – Cleric



Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Afikpo, Rev. Paul Udogu, had said the federal government is playing politics with the nation’s educational system.

He said rather than playing politics with the system, it was time for the government to overhaul the education system and invest heavily in the sector.

Speaking during of 5th synod of the Afikpo Anglican Diocese held at Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic Unwana, Afikpo, Udogu argued that most of the nation’s tertiary institutions look like glorified secondary schools.

The opined that there are poor infrastructures in the tertiary institutions with crowed crowded lecture rooms with little or no furniture for students, inadequate funds for research, and poor workers remuneration which he said pose a serious challenge to the system.

“The introduction of Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System(IPPIS) by the federal government is a good move to curb the issue of corruption and ‘ghost workers’ in our higher institutions but the irregularities and the deficiencies in the IPPIS have not helped matters, as ASUU advocate for University Transparency and Accountability Solution(UTAS).
