Buhari’s Daughter Bags UK Degree Amid 7 Months ASUU Strike
One of President Muhammadu Buhari’s daughters, Zahra B. Buhari, graduated with a first-class degree from a UK institution on Tuesday, despite the fact that public universities in Nigeria remained closed due to a lack of agreement between the government of Nigeria and the academic staff union.
The President’s wife, Aisha Buhari, revealed this in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
“Congratulations to Mrs. Zahra B Buhari on your graduation with First Class Honors in Architectural Science. Wishing you all the best,” she posted.
Zahra’s graduation occurs in the midst of a nationwide strike by lecturers at public universities.
The strike has now lasted for seven months.
The Buhari-led administration and ASUU have been at odds over inadequate university financing and the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, a system on which the government said all teachers must register in order to receive salary payments.
The disagreement between both parties has led to the closure of all government universities for the last eight months.
