Amid ASUU strike, Buhari’s daughter-in-law graduates from foreign university

Students block Lagos-Ibadan expressway over prolonged ASUU strike

The First Lady, Aisha Buhari, disclosed this on her social media handle on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

She wrote; Congratulations to Mrs. Zahra B Buhari on your graduation with First Class Honors in Architectural Science. Wish you all the best.

Zahra is married to Buhari’s only son, Yusuf. She is the daughter of Emir of Bichi in Kano State, Nasiru Bayero.

This comes amid the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which has grounded academic activities in public universities since February 14, 2022.

The union is demanding the release of revitalization funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

The government claimed to have addressed most of the union’s demands, including the release of N50b for the payment of earned allowances for academic and non-academic staff of universities, but said the union had not paid the arrears debt of the strike period.

ASUU also insisted on not calling off the ongoing strike until the arrears are settled.

Meanwhile, the federal government, through the Minister of Labor and Employment, Chris Ngige, dragged the striking university lecturers before the National Industrial Court (NIC).

However, Justice Polycap Hamman adjourned the case on Monday, September 19, 2022 to enable both the Federal Government to file the necessary documents for the case.
