The former Vice President said he is aware of efforts by the Conference of Alumni Associations of Nigeria Universities (CAANU) as the umbrella body of Alumni Associations in Nigerian Universities to seek a formidable relationship with Association of Commonwealth Universities, National Universities Commission, TETFUND.

He sobbed that Nigerian students have continued to suffer, particularly now that the Academic Staff Unions of Universities (ASUU), undertook on another strike, which has paralyzed academic activities for almost eight months.

It is gratifying to note the offer made by the Federal Government to members of ASUU, though not exhaustively meeting the demands of the union but certainly it is a bold step towards resolving the lingering crises in our University education,” he said.
