Peter Obi Lambasts FG For Sponsoring Govt Officials To International Training Amid ASUU Strike

Presidential candidate of Labour Congress, Peter Obi has taken a swipe at Federal Government for sponsoring the training of public office holders while Nigerian varsity students are at home due to the ongoing ASUU strike.

Recall that pictures of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, surfaced on the internet a few days ago as he was undergoing a course at the John F Kennedy School of Government at the Harvard Business School.

Gbajabiamila’s course at Havard, allegedly sponsored by the government came to light amid the controversy and rift between the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and the federal government.

The ASUU Strike has kept students at home for the past five months with no end in sight.Obi revealed this via Twitter to lament the level of treatment being meted to the Nigerian youths, particularly students, who described the training of leaders with public funds as a misplaced priority.
