Presidential candidate of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party, ANRP, Tope Fasua, has unveiled his plans to ensure that undergraduates in all tertiary institutions earn a minimum wage while in school.
He made his plan public on Thursday at a town hall meeting/presidential debate organised by The Osasu Show, in Abuja.
His words: “At the tertiary level, my plan is unique. Every student at the university from year two should be useful to this society in terms of infrastructure development.
“I have seen video chancellors complain about how they need money for roads within the universities that house departments of civil engineering.
“We want a situation where people would go to the universities and earn at least the minimum wage.”
He then urged parents to equip their children the opportunity of education in order to drive down the country’s high number of out-of-school children or be made to face sanctions.
