A former National Welfare Secretary of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Professor Ngozi Iloh has urged the Edo State Government to set the right governing council and initiate the process along with the federal government that will ameliorate the plight of University lecturers especially those at the Ambrose Alli University (AAU).
She made this known while speaking on Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki’s decision to suspend activities of Unions at AAU, on Crest FM’s Programme “The Crest Breakfast show”.
According to Professor Iloh, AAU lecturers are being owed 17 months salary and would have begun their agitations before the general industrial action embarked upon by ASUU as all pleas to the government seem to have been falling on deaf ears.
A legal expert, Emmanuel Rotji, who also joined the discourse advised the people to wake up to their consciousness and boot out leaders who through executive rascality subvert the will of the people; especially the youths.
Rotji then advised the political leaders to live up to their sworn responsibility and ensure that the entire system works for the benefit of all
