Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation has appealed to the Federal Government and all the unions, especially ASUU, to quickly arrive at a common ground to enable the immediate resumption of academic activities in the country in the interest of stranded youths.
Signed by Abubakar Umar, Director General of the Foundation, the communique was sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The Foundation noted with concern that the ongoing strike will depreciate the quality of educational sector, discourage students’ effort at academic excellence, and force some youths to venture into some anti-social vices.
It noted that the level of national growth and development can be measured by the strength of its educational success and youths’ engagements.
The communique recommended a total economic policy overhaul that will address the socio-economic unrest in the North and other parts of Nigeria.
