A prominent Islamic Scholar in Kano State, Sheikh Abdulwahab Gadon-Kaya, has begged the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to find a lasting solution to the ongoing strike.

The Islamic Scholar made the appeal during a Town Hall meeting tagged ‘Struggle: In Defense of Nigerian Public Universities’ on Saturday in the state.

The cleric noted that there was the need for the urgent reopening of the Universities because the seven-month-old strike had caused a lot of issues,

He noted that the strike has pushed many students into committing different crimes, especially robbery, drug abuse and girls roaming the streets.

Gadon-Kaya also asked the Federal Government to look into the demands of the lecturers and help the students return to school, adding that affected children are of the masses.

“ASUU should also seriously look into the issue by softening your demands so that government can be able to meet up with them.”

He also appealed to the National Assembly to intervene on the issue so that the strike could be called off, NAN reports.

Responding, the Kano Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Prof. Mahmud Lawal said the meeting was to engage the public and create better awareness on why the Union was on strike.

Lawal mentioned that the union on many occasions softened its demands and had agreements with the government, but many of them were not respected by the government.
