‘Insensitive and profane’, HURIWA knocks Buhari’s wife for celebrating daughter-in-law’s graduation

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Nigeria has been on an extended academic strike for more than seven months. Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has criticised the President’s wife, Hajia Aisha Buhari, for publicly celebrating her daughter-in-graduation law’s from a university in the United Kingdom.

The HURIWA National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, expressed his response in a statement on Wednesday, calling the First Lady’s behaviour “insensitive and disrespectful.”

He called on her to come openly to the public again to apologize to “millions of Nigerian students and helpless parents, because her action was a slap on their faces and a disregard for their emotions and plights.”

The group added: “Her comments come amid the seven-month industrial action by ASUU over Federal Government’s blatant failure to meet its agreement with the poorly paid lecturers.

“Of note, since May 29, 2015 when Buhari came into office, lecturers in universities, polytechnics and colleges of education have embarked on over 900 days of strike.

“But amid ASUU’s incessant strikes, politicians and government officials school abroad and send their children to study in prestigious schools overseas. As though that is not enough, they will rub it in the faces of poor and stranded Nigerians on social media by flaunting their photos.”
