End ASUU strike now, Ighodalo charges FG
Senior Pastor, Trinity House and Managing Partner, SIAO, a professional accounting firm, Ituah Ighodalo, has pleaded with the government over the Academic Staff Unions of University (ASUU) crisis.
He equally appealed to the lecturers to be a bit flexible in the interest of long-suffering students for prompt resumption of lectures.
Making the appeal, yesterday, at the commissioning of Kings College’s library refurbished to mark his birthday, the cleric regretted the long strike, saying it is affecting the entire nation, life of the students and prospective undergraduates.
He said: “It is unfortunate that Nigerian universities have become so bad to the extent that students only enter, but do not know when they would finish, which leads to economic loss, brain-drain with resources being taken out of the country.
“Two things really drive the progress of a nation. One is education when it is well funded and stable, while the second is infrastructure.
“Any government that would make meaningful progress must work hard on education and infrastructure. So, it is a big concern that the present government is not making enough emphasis on education.”
