APC Got N2.5 trillion In Primaries, Can Pay ASUU N1.1 trillion Demand – HURIWA



ASUU Strike

HURIWA has disclosed that the ruling All Progressive Congress got N2.5 trillion from the presidential form it sold to aspirants and can pay ASUU N1.1 trillion demand.


Newsonline reports that the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, on Wednesday said if the ruling APC and President Buhari are concerned about ASUU strike, it would have taken little from the trillions it made in the selling of aspirants forms in the concluded primary.


HURIWA National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, said the insensitivity of President Buhari government and the ruling APC was responsible for increasing rates of crime across the country.


Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko,  said, “the APC-led government has demonstrated nonchalance to tertiary education in public schools obviously because the ruling class sends their children to private institutions in Nigeria and overseas.”


Onwubiko revealed that “the APC raked in over N2.5 trillion naira from its recent presidential primary alone as over 25 aspirants paid N100 million each. The N2.5 trillion is excluding trillions gotten from thousands of governorship, senatorial, House of Representatives, and state Houses of Assembly aspirants.”

He maintained that “if the party is serious about ending the ASUU strike and saving its President, Muhammadu Buhari, from ignoble shame, it would have given just N1.1 trillion to ASUU to end the strike. But unfortunately, we have shameless people in power both at the APC top echelon and the Federal Government.”


Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA National Coordinator called on the National Assembly to proceed immediately with the impeachment of the president, Buhari.


“We call on the National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari for letting the ASUU strike linger thereby endangering national security. Everyone knows an idle hand is the devil’s workshop. This is why is not imaginable that some undergraduate youths would have gone into sophisticated crimes such as kidnappings, cultism, terrorism, drug trafficking, amongst others.


“The government’s inability to resolve the industrial crisis in the public universities whereby over 70% of youths attend because they are from poor backgrounds is a direct declaration of war on the youths.


“HURIWA, therefore, urged the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, to be a man now that he couldn’t get his promised presidential candidacy from the cabal in Aso Rock. He should do the needful and etch his name on the sands of time by impeaching the President.”


Onwubiko threatened, “HURIWA will subsequently write to all Western Embassies to urge them not to admit children of governors, ministers, and the President for any academic programmes in their nations until the ASUU strike is permanently solved.


HURIWA also demanded that “the National Association of Nigerian Students must sustain public protests and not cave in to intimidation and money-based Aluta. They should not eat their future like Esau.”
