COVID-19 and E-Learning: Education Minister lacks proper Education – ASUU | ASUU Drags Minister For Education Over E-Learning In Universities, “He Lacks Proper Education” | E-LEARNING: Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Adamu, ‘not properly educated’ – ASUU
Nigeria’s Minister Of Education, Adamu Adamu has made it known to reporters that there were ongoing efforts for the students in the University and Students of other higher institutions of learning to take lectures via the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) and the Federal Radio Corporation Of Nigeria (FRCN). These two are both government-owned broadcast platforms. This post therefore centers on COVID-19 and E-Learning: Education Minister lacks proper Education – ASUU.
Due to the CoronaVirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, Schools have been shut and at a presidential briefing in Abuja last week Tuesday, Nigeria’s President, Retired General Mohammadu Buhari made it known that the Ministry Of Education had been planning E-learning for a long time even before the Pandemic and stated that some tertiary institutions in the country were already giving lessons online and he hoped It would be a permanent feature of the Nigerian Educational System.
In the light of the above, The Honourable Minister made it known that he had given direction to Vice-Chancellors concerning the E-Learning. Meanwhile the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) for a month now had gone on a nationwide strike since March 9, 2020 due to a disagreement with the government over issues of University rehabilitation and academic allowance owed them by the Government but the Minister also in said: “As far as I know, there is nobody who has not been paid his or her salary”
Things took a negative turn when the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Body released a bulletin titled: “The Directive By The Minister Of Education That Tertiary Institutions Should Resume The Session By Online Teaching” in which The Minister Of Education was painted as a bluff and a minister who had zero knowledge of the E-learning Platform.
The Bulletin states “It is important to break what E-learning involves down to its constituents bolts and nut, This is necessary in order not to leave anyone in doubt that the Honorable Minister is either engaged in political gimmickry or is not fully informed of the situtation in the sector over which he presides”
The ASUU Bulletin explained that the E-learning platform in details, stating its heavy requirements and the Government’s inability to provide these tools especially the heavy online infrastructure needed and regulation in power supply and made It known that no Nigerian University was operating any form or model of E-learning and also had some Vice Chancellors take their share in the show of shame saying “Over the years governments, in collaboration with some corrupt Vice Chancellors have duped smart boards on Universities which are now largely used as marker boards because they are not internet enabled and have no electricity to power them”
They urged Nigerians not to be fooled by the melodrama the Ministry Of Education and The Federal Government were playing, They stated “The Minister is not properly educated to understand that online learning is much more than copying mocks and making powerpoint, Moreover sustainable technology should be the factor in determining the approach to E-Learning not the excitement from improperly digested information from too much education tourism”
The lecturers’ Association also recognized the effort of the National Open University and the Distance Learning Operation but said that the E-learning cannot be practiced via this medium. They also stated clearly in the Bulletin issued by the ASUU-UI Publicity Committee “On the average, a lecturer spends between 20,000 – 40,000 on data monthly, another 20,000 to buy fuel for generators” talking about their plight telling Citizens that It was another plan by the Federal Government to make content off the suffering of the very poor masses.
