Strike: FG, ASUU need to find a lasting solution – Pastor Okomolehin
The Federal government has been urged to accede to the demands by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to prevent irregular academic calendars in Nigerian universities.
The Assistant General Overseer in charge of African Mission of the Gospel Faith Mission International, Pastor Samuel Okomolehin gave the charge in an interview with Radio Nigeria in Ibadan.
Pastor Okomolehin who lamented incessant strikes by ASUU, said adequate funding of Nigerian universities was inevitable if the nation’s institution of higher learning must be at par with its counterparts in the developed country.
The clergyman urged the striking lecturers and federal government to return to the negotiation table with a view to resolving the lingering conflict.
Speaking ahead of the 2023 general elections, Pastor Okomolehin said aspiring politicians should abide by the rules guiding the electoral process rather than seeing it as a do-or-die affair.
Pastor Okomolehin who appealed to politicians to have a heart of service towards the masses, urged current political office holders to shun corruption and focus more on people-oriented policies and programmes.
