Cleric Appeals To FG, ASUU To Call Off Strike


A Catholic cleric, Rev. Fr. John Ikponko, has appealed to the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resolve their differences in order to save the university system.

Ikponko, Parish Priest, Saint Theresa’s Catholic Parish, High Level, Makurdi, made the call in his sermon on Sunday.

The priest said the Federal Government and ASUU should shift their positions to end the strike.

The Federal Government and ASUU know the problem and I wonder why both parties cannot agree.

“As a country, we do not have any reason for university students being at home for months without encouraging them to misbehave.

“University education is important, and it is where we produce professionals to handle various aspects of our economy,” Rev. Fr. John Ikponko said.
