ASUU Strike: Politicians' children must not study abroad
The Bishop of Diocese of Uyo, Anglican Communion, Rt. Rev Asukwo Antai, has called on the Federal Government to enact a law banning public office holders from sending their children/wards to study in tertiary institutions abroad as means of averting incessant strikes in the country’s tertiary institutions.

Bishop Antai, who decried the incessant strikes in the country, explained that lack of commitment of the Nigerian government towards addressing lingering issues is connected to the fact that most of them have their children studying abroad. Antai made the call at the Bishop’s Episcopal charge during the third Session of the Seventh Synod of Uyo Diocese, noting that such law will help sustain the interest of Nigerian leaders in the education sector.

His words: “The incessant shut down of our tertiary institutions due to non-payment of emoluments, among other demands, should make our government to enact a law/policy that will prohibit public office holders from sending their children/wards to study abroad. “That will help them work towards upgrading and stabilising the education system. There should be a change of heart by Nigeria’s leaders to educational development.”
