Gani Adams reacts to 3 months extension of ASUU strike


Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Otunba Gani Adams has said the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike is disturbing and cannot continue for another 3 months.

The traditional leader told the Federal Government that the future of the youths was being toyed with.

Adams spoke in Lagos yesterday at his 52nd birthday ceremony.

The chief expressed concern over the government’s failure to end recurring industrial action over the years.

“Nigerian students cannot withstand another strike for the next 12 weeks”, he warned.

Adams urged the authorities to address the issues facing the education sector and handle them properly.

“I feel bad whenever I see that university students are still at home. This affects their thinking and portends grave danger to us as a nation.”

Adams said he’ll continue to touch lives positively and urged the Yoruba to promote their religion, tradition and culture.

“There is a clear difference between the three but they are all very key to our identity as Omo Odua.”
