The union said it has been warning governments to cater for the needs of the vulnerable in the society which appear to have fallen to deaf ears.
Chairman, University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU, Professor Deji Omole in a statement made available to DAILY POST stated that instead of budgeting for peoples welfare, Nigerian governments now spend billions of naira to buy security equipments from the countries that have invested heavily in research and training.
Omole said due to years of neglect and unbridled corruption in high places, many Nigerians have come to lose interest in standards of ethical living since those leading them are mortgaging the future
He stated that the union had maintained that a time will come when the children of the poor will have nothing to eat, stating that the observation is happening now.
Omole added that poor education funding has made Nigerian students to live in zoo-like hostels with sad memories for the society.
He said, “Every year they budget for themselves. The president and his cabinet get lion share and the some members of the National assembly with no brilliant contributions to economy become billionaires overnight as a result of this insecurity.
“Instead of attending to poverty, education and unemployment, the security forces advice on buying more weapons. They keep on churning out bad policies that impoverishes more families and with no job, and bad economy, crime and criminality is reigning supreme.
“Government must give electricity, tackle unemployment and attack poverty and fund education to keep children in focus on positive development attitudes”.
