Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Sunday says President Muhammadu Buhari lacks the commitment to use education to solve poverty problem in the country.

ASUU described the statement credited to the President citing Education as a way to end poverty as a political statement.

The Chairman, ASUU University of Ibadan, Professor Deji Omole stated this on Sunday in Ibadan.

According to him, Nigerians do not need the President to tell them what has been proven by serious countries as a way to edge-out poverty.

Omole maintained that beyond uttering such statement, President Buhari and his team through their education policies have shown hatred to fund and offer Nigerians qualitative education.
