3 of my kids are in public varsities – Nigerian labor and employment minister

Chris Ngige, minister of labor and employment, says he has three children in public universities affected by the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) strike.

The strike which is in its eighth month has led to the suspension of academic activities in public universities.

In an interview on ARISE TV on Sunday, Ngige refuted the claim that political leaders care less about the strike because their children are in schools abroad.

The minister said three of his children are in public universities in the country, but he did not mentioned the name of the institutions.

“I have three biological children in public schools. They are in public schools; they are not in private universities. Unlike ASUU members who have most of their children in private universities, three of mine are here. So, I am a very big stakeholder in the public tertiary school system,” he said.
