The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday said Nigerians need good governance in the New Year rather the blame game that characterised the previous year.
ASUU chairman, University of Ibadan chapter, Dr Deji Omole said this while speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, adding that there will be no basis for any blame game in the New Year as the ordinary Nigerians have sacrificed a lot for this nation by enduring various anti-poor policies imposed on them by the ruling class.
Omole pointed out that the time has come for the governments at the state and federal levels to reciprocate by providing good leadership and invest consciously, transparently and heavily in the key sectors of the economic especially education and energy where the masses can benefit.
“That the ordinary Nigerian has sacrificed a lot for this nation by enduring various anti-poor policies imposed on them by the ruling class.
“Government at state and federal levels should reciprocate by providing good leadership and invest consciously, transparently and heavily in the key sector of the economic especially education and energy where the masses can benefit,” he said.
Omole stressed that in the New Year, Nigerians don’t want to hear about cabal stories, as President Buhari must confront corruption without border.
According to him, it is unfortunate that the President’s men are being shielded from corruption probe, adding that it was a dangerous trend in 2017 which must not be replayed in 2018.
“Corruption should be confronted without border because in Nigeria today government officials are not only corrupt but corruption is official.”
. What we expect is good governance not blame game.”
