The Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali, has appealed to the federal government and striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to have a change of mind by putting the interests of the students first and embrace dialogue so as to put an end to the ongoing strike.

Ambali made the appeal yesterday in his address at the school’s 26th convocation ceremony titled: “Victory at last,” noting that the need to adopt dialogue became necessary because the interest of the students should always be put first.

According to him, “We should always put the interest of the students first and do all things necessary to ensure that they are not left idle even for a minute.”

“It is said that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop and it is possible that students not in school may become vulnerable to anti social thoughts and actions.”

The vice-chancellor explained that there was a difference between truth and reality, “we should seek and pursue the truth and be realistic in such pursuits. It is my hope that it shall be victory at last for all the parties involved in the current challenges facing many Nigerian universities.”

Ambali assured Nigerians and even beyond that the graduating students were well behaved and that he would continue to be proud of them for making excellence their watchword and shunning cultism and all other anti-social behaviour that are found elsewhere.
