He stated this on Monday morning while answering questions on Arise TV.
He also restated the Federal Government’s commitment to ending the eight-month strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
There has been many remarks that the government has no interest in resolving the issues within Nigeria universities because their children are all abroad or in private universities. The Minister rebuked all these remarks.
According to the minister
“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.
“Two of them have American citizenship; they can be in America but I choose them to be here with me.”
