EKITI State governor and chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday, said the federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, would soon resolve their ongoing crisis that has led to long strike action.
Fayemi, who said he had the opportunity to be part of negotiations between government and ASUU in his capacity as NGF chairman, noted that in view of the successes recorded so far, “we are nearer to the resolution of the of the crisis than people think”.
Speaking during the 24th convocation ceremony of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, where 11,437 bagged various degrees, the governor appealed to labor leaders in the institution to always embrace peace and give room for dialogue in resolving many of the issues that might come short of their expectations.
He advised Nigerian graduates to develop capabilities to generate uncommon innovation and ideas, describing it as the best catalysts to success in a 21st-century economy.
“This is a period when academic curricular of our citadels of learning should be tailored towards meeting the realities of our contemporary Nigeria and the antidote for its various challenges.
“It is a generally accepted norm that only qualified staff and students could innovate and steer the ship of our university system as well as Nigeria as a nation to our expected shore.
“Therefore, I challenge the graduating students of today to see themselves as the future of Nigeria. The earlier the responsibility of leadership is embraced by their generation, the better for them as a people and to us as a nation,” Fayemi said.
