Ruby Pledges to end ASUU’s perennial strike if elected president

Mrs. Ruby Isaac a presidential aspirant on the platform of the Young Progressives Party,  has pledged to work toward ending the perennial Academic Staff Union of Universities’ strike in the country.

Isaac said this on Tuesday at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja when she spoke with newsmen.

She also promised to salvage dysfunctional public institutions in the country, saying that quality and functional education was a catalyst for national development.

“It is shameful to see education stakeholders who have not performed well now vying for elective positions while the system suffers and youths suffer longevity in studying short-term courses as a result of their insensitivity and selfishness.

“Nigerian leaders deliberately ignored proffering solutions to the nation’s problem because of greed, selfishness, and self-service.

“But if I am given the opportunity to serve in the capacity of the president, I will ensure that identified problems that hinder national progress such as ASUU strikes would be given permanent solutions.

“I will also ensure that children of elected public officers are made to school within the country and not outside the country,” she said.

She added: “This is one major way to end a dysfunctional educational system because no elected official would sit back and watch his or her child remain in school for so long.”

She promised to strive hard to reduce to the bare minimum the number of out-of-school children in the country.

“We will do this by creating and enforcing legislation that will make it compulsory for parents/guardians to send their children/wards to school, at least up to the secondary level of education,” she said.

She also promised to pay special attention to girl-child education, especially in Northern Nigeria.

The aspirant also pledged to address the infrastructure deficit in Nigeria, which has been identified as the most challenging factor in doing business in the country.

She pledged to offset the nation’s foreign debt as well as end further borrowings.

According to her, to clear a nation’s debt without further borrowings, the country must become resourceful and generate its funds internally.

“We will diversity into every untapped natural resource that we have like rubber and ensure that our economy becomes a multidimensional economy,” she said.

She promised to use the party’s strategies to tackle poverty and overhaul the police and other sister agencies for better results.

Ruby Unveils 50-year Roadmap

Ruby Isaac

Ahead of the 2023 general elections, a 45-year-old female presidential aspirant on the platform of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Mrs Ruby Isaac Chinenye, has unveiled a 50-year roadmap to save Nigeria from many challenges confronting it as a nation.

Mrs Chinenye also promised to use her connections and profession to bring Nigeria out of the huge foreign debt the country is currently facing, saying she would ensure the country become a producing nation instead of a consuming one.

She made the pledges while declaring her interest to run for the office of the president in Abuja.

The 2023 presidential hopeful, who is a financial expert, said: “We will make every Nigerian a stakeholder, the best way out of any problem is by tackling it from the source. If we tackle the source of anything that would lead to borrowing, we will then begin to tackle other issues one by one, and the only way all these can be fixed is only if Nigeria becomes a producing nation instead of a consuming nation.”

Mrs. Chinyere added that she would focus on security which would enhance the livelihood of citizens.

According to her, “Solving insecurity is automatically solving hunger problem. Due to the high rate of insecurity in Nigeria, farmers abandoned their farms and the citizens are now struggling on a daily basis before eating, while many go to bed on empty stomach.

“Solving insecurity problem is automatically solving the problem of hunger. As a result of insecurity in the land, farmers had been driven away from the farm. Due to this, hunger has taken over the land. Majority of Nigerians now go to bed on empty stomach. When hunger and starvation are over, you have automatically solved major challenges in the land; you will then get maximum productivity from our teeming youths.”

She, therefore, advised the youths to take their destiny into their own hands by making sure they vote massively for a competent presidential candidate in 2023.

“I advise Nigerians especially the youths to do the needful by voting in a new crop of leaders that can take the nation out of its woes. All we need is someone that has the ability to turn things around for the betterment of all Nigerians. If we have the right man or woman as President of Nigeria, the narrative would change; as a matter of fact, Nigeria would be like the US, China, and so on. There is no point recycling the same crop of leaders that have brought us to this sorry state,” she added.
