A former Chief Press Secretary to Ex-Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose and PDP House of Reps candidate for Ekiti Central Federal Constituency 2, Lere Olayinka has begged ASUU to call off its ongoing strike.

Foreclosing any possible resolution of the contentious issue, Olayinka said when a government emerges again in the country, ASUU’s issues can be resolved.

Referring to Kayamo’s interview where he said Nigerians should beg ASUU to call off the strike, Olayinka said the interview showed that the government has become clueless and useless over the ongoing strike.

He said: “I am on my bended knees this morning, pleading as a parent that this strike in our universities should end.

“My plea is premised on the confession of the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (I won’t address him as a SAN because a SANship is about having sense), that the Buhari’s APC govt of 53 thieves does not have every sense of responsibility to end the strike.

“Keyamo said on Live TV yesterday, that on the strike, the FG has become helpless, hopeless, clueless, useless, visionless and directionless.

“Therefore, it has now become the duty of Nigerians to beg ASUU to end the strike.

“Consequently, in the name of God, I am on my knees begging ASUU to call off the strike so that our children can return to school.

“This is not to say that I do not appreciate the demands of ASUU, but I am sure that when we have a govt in the country, the demands will be addressed.

“More so that the strike NO even KONSAN those in this Buhari’s APC government because their children are either in universities abroad or private universities in Nigeria.

“Thank you as you consider this my plea and call of the strike,” he said in a statement sent to AFRIPOST.
