The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has urged the Federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to resolve the ongoing impasse without further delay.
Adeboye, speaking through his Assistant General Overseer, Administration and Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola, on Sunday called on both parties to reach an agreement as soon as possible.
The cleric added that the more the strike was prolonged, the more the economy and the development of the country suffered.
“Higher institutions of learning are the citadels where learning takes place to bring development to any country.
“Therefore, continuous strike will only continue to aggravate the chaos that would eventually lead to retrogression in the economy.
“I, therefore, plead with the Federal Government to realise that education is the livewire of this country and to the best of its ability, accede to the demands of ASUU, while the union should be considerate with its demands knowing the present state of the country’s economy,” Adeboye said.
