Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has spoken about having children in public universities.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has stated that three of his children attend public universities in Nigeria.
Ngige made this public while speaking on Arise TV on Monday.
He debunked claims that government officials have been foot-draggers in the ongoing negotiations with university lecturers because their children school abroad.
Public universities have been shut for about eight months due to the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
“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,” Ngige said.
“So, when ASUU says politicians don’t care because they have taken their children abroad, Chris Ngige cares because my children are not abroad even though they have dual nationality – two of them have American citizenship; they can be in America but I choose them to be here with me.
“So, ASUU cannot accuse me of not being nationalistic enough. Anything that will help the university system here, I am in the forefront.”
