As public universities remained shut as both the Nigerian government and the academic staff union failed to reach an agreement, Zahra B. Buhari, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday graduated with a first-class degree from a United Kingdom university.
Aisha Buhari, the President’s wife disclosed 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.
President Buhari’s Daughter Graduates From United Kingdom Varsity Amid 7 Months Strike By Nigerian University Lecturers, ASUU
Zahra’s graduation comes amid an industrial action embarked on by public university lecturers across the country.
The strike is in its seventh month.
ASUU and the Buhari-led government have been at loggerheads over poor funding of universities and the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, a platform on which the government said all lecturers must be registered or they would not be paid salaries.
The disagreement between both parties has led to the closure of all government universities for the last eight months.
