VICE Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali, has said that an end will come to ongoing industrial action between the Academic Staff Union of universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government if the two parties are willing to compromise their hard line postures via effective dialogue.

The truce would only come into fruition if the two parties involved are willing to compromise their hard line postures via effective dialogue.

Speaking with newsmen at convocation press briefing of the university in Ilorin, on Monday, the VC said true principles of industrial labour relations should be adhered to, if there must be an end in sight to the crisis.

It will be recalled that the University of Ilorin is the only Federal Government-owned university that is not involved in the ongoing strike between the ASUU and the Federal Government.

“There should be meaningful dialogue between the parties in crisis. Again, the spirit of give and take must be played up. Once we embark on being our brothers’ keeper, justice will be done.

“Already, both groups are getting closer and in a couple of weeks or days, there will be a truce over the matter,” he said.

The University of Ilorin will on Tuesday, October 22, graduate 6, 851 students, comprising 5, 882 first degree and 969 higher degree. Of the higher degree graduates, 85, would be conferred with Postgraduate Diplomas; 788, Masters Degrees and 181, Ph.Ds in various disciplines.
