zone of the state.

He urged the striking lecturers to come to terms with the current
reality. Recall that university lecturers have been on strike since July
1 this year with the different negotiating teams failing to broker
peace between the union and the Federal Government. The lecturers have
remained adamant in spite of pleas by parents, stakeholders, insisting
that its action is informed by the need to save university education
from total collapse The Vice President, who is the Chairman of the Federal
Government team negotiating with ASUU said on the occasion, “ASUU wants
the Federal Government to shift its positions. We have already done
that. It is now the turn of ASUU to shift its position and call off the
strike in order to save the education sector from deteriorating.
 

Sambo said that Federal Government had intervened in the funding of
universities  through TETFUND which is an indication that government
believes its transformation agenda can only be realised through sound
education. He disclosed that about N2.2 billion has been approved for
the Bauchi State University as special intervention fund by the
Federal Government.

He pledged Federal Government’s continued support and partnership
with Bauchi State on education which is the thrust of President Goodluck
Jonathan’s transformation agenda saying that no nation would grow
without education.

“We will continue to provide education by providing conducive teaching and learning environment to all the people.

Sambo said the present administration has embarked on total
rehabilitation of railway tracks, development of irrigation farming and
training of youths on ICT for wealth- creation and improvement of the
people’s economy.

Speaking, Bauchi State Governor Isa Yuguda said that the idea of
establishing a state university was conceived by the immediate past
administration but the implementation was carried out by his
administration He said the university opened on September 23, 2011
following approval by the National University Commission (NUC).
According to him, the state contributed two per cent of state’s
statutory allocation while the local government areas contributed five
per cent for the running of the university.

Yuguda said that so far, N16.5b has been spent on construction of
hostels, library, road networks and blocks of classrooms. While
commending the Federal Government for its intervention in the
education sector, Yuguda appealed to government to include Bauchi in the
supply of textbooks by Universal Basic Education (UBE) programme.
