Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo .O. Kanayo has waded in on the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), criticizing the failing educational sector in the country.
Kanayo took to his social media handle on Sunday to express his discontent at the way the Nigerian government was handling the educational sector of the country, calling on the Federal Government to desist from playing politics with ASUU.
According to Kanayo, a poorly managed education sector will only produce half-baked products and at such the management and control of the sector should not solely be handled by the FG.
The star of the GLO-sponsored TV series, 'Professor Johnbull' noted that it was time for NGOs to fund the education sector in the country and ASUU should seek other funding options apart from the FG.
"Hello Proximate People, a great evening salutation. Dress the way you want to be addressed. I was just dressing up for Lectures before the ASUU strike. Does the Government sponsor the Education sector abroad? Why are there no strikes in the institutions in the West? Many non-Governmental organizations fund the sector and relieve the Government of the burden of the management and control of this critical sector".
"A poorly managed education sector will only produce half-baked products. Government must not play Politics with ASUU, so also must ASUU also statutorily seek for other funding modules. Enjoy a pleasant weekend #OverAndOut".
Kanayo .O. Kanayo is currently studying for his law degree at the University of Abuja. Earlier this year, the 54-year old revealed he had resumed classes at the school. [Read here if you missed it]
