Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently fix the problems with the Nigerian economy to check growing tensions in the country.
ASUU said that part of the problems with the present government was policy inconsistency.
The Chairman ASUU, University of Ibadan chapter, Dr Deji Omole, stated this in a chat with newsmen on Sunday.
He said the economy was a superstructure that could not be handled with levity but sound economic team and policy which he said were yet to materialize in the present government. He said President Buhari should urgently tackle the economic challenges of the country.
He said while the statistics of the unemployed were unpalatable, more youths were joining the market of unemployed and wasting away because no working policy had effectively targeted them.
He said that the growing spate of kidnapping, abduction, corruption, armed robbery, cyber-criminality were not unconnected with the poor economic conditions.
