Is the Honourable Minister of Finance, the Federal Executive Council, The House of Assembly and The Presidency aware of what trouble they are creating by keeping Nigerian University students out of classes for months?
I don't really think so... It hurts me that the Minister of Finance, who has a Ph.d in Economics, would not drop politics and be factual, knowing the effects of government's spending in the lives of Nigerian University students by giving them quality university education! She makes me ashamed to call myself a student of economics.
I seriously hope she'll have the confidence to tell the Presidency the truth because thousands of idle minded youths who are university students and have an educated creative minds could wake up one morning and offer their creative minds to crime and evil.
In a time where insecurity is a major issue in the country it's highly unwise of the Jonathan-led government to allow Nigerian University students toroam around idle in frustration... I hope this message gets to those I've mentioned, I hope it does!
