KEN DECKS:‎ASUU strike ill-timed, says Olanipekun

A former Pro-chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Wole Olanipekun, (SAN) has said that the strike action being contemplated by the Academic Staff Union of Universities was ill-timed because of the biting economic recession.
ASUU has begun a week warning strike action as a preliminary to indefinite strike action to press home its usual demands.
Speaking on Saturday during his yearly scholarship scheme for students at his home country in Ikere Ekiti, Olanipekun said, “I wouldn’t say this is the right time for the ASUU to embark on strike action again, but at the same time I want to plead with the ASUU and federal government to look into the matter urgently.
” We must not kill education, Education leads to revival, it leads to revolution, emancipation and it also leads to freedom. Without education, there would be darkness. Because education brings light.
“Already education is dying in Nigeria. I want to plead with both ASUU and the government, please come together, reason together and urgently resolve your differences for our children. And these children are the reason for our existence, the hub of our life, the anchor of our nation.
A nation without a future is no nation and what do we mean by future, it is the education for these young people. So, I want to plead with ASUU to reason with government and the government should also reason with them. This is not the right time in the interest of those children.”
