Alumni associations urge FG to meet ASUU’s demands, tackle insecurity
Conference of Alumni Associations of Nigerian Universities (CAANU) has called on the Federal Government to device new methods for tackling growing insecurity in the country.
It also urged government to fulfil its agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to avoid the resumption of suspended strike.
The charges were contained in a communique issued at the end of the association’s fourth quarterly meeting held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Akwa, Anambra State.
The document, signed by CAANU’s Chairman, Prof. Ahmed Tijjani Mora and Secretary, Dr. Godwin Akpan, described attacks on universities and other educational institutions as regrettable.
It noted that the growing insecurity has constituted a major threat to the development of university education.
