The Academic Staff Union of Universities has condemned the comment of the Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, calling for the ban of the university lecturers’ union.
Okoh, had, last week called on the Federal Government to disband ASUU owing to the unresolved industrial face-off between the government and the striking teachers
Chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter of the union, Olusegun Ajiboye, said in a statement on Tuesday, titled ‘Primate Okoh Goofed’, that the Anglican bishop’s comment did not depict him as a religious leader with a heart to the resolve the disagreements between warring factions.
Ajiboye said, “The Primate has demonstrated the greatest ignorance about the union and the numerous achievements the union has recorded in repositioning Nigerian universities in the past.
As a revered man of God, it is expected that he should guard his mouth and not to allow his mouth to run diarrhea on issues as important as education that concerns the teeming youths of our country.”
