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