Stakeholders Seek Peaceful Resolution Of ASUU Impasse

Some stakeholders in the education sector have called for a harmonious resolution of the deadlock between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU that had resulted in a national strike by the lecturers. The union had on Monday directed its members to embark on a two- week warning strike.

ASSU said the warning strike was to demands the non-implementation of various agreements reached with government as well as protest the compulsory enrolment into the IPPIS salary payment platform. But stakeholders said there is urgent need for both parties to come together in the interest of students and the education sector.

A retired principal, Motunrayo Adisa, said it is important for ASUU and the Federal Government to ensure that the interest of students were prioritised and protected.

Adeola Elekuru, another educationist also pleaded with both parties to resolve the persistent crisis in the overall interest of students across the country.

Another respondent, Afeez Adeleke also appeal for a speedy resolution, saying the situation should be arrested before it escalates into a full blown industrial action.
