The Federal Government and Aca-demic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have been urged to reconcile their differences with a view to re-opening universities closed three months ago due to strike.
The Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo, made the appeal during Eid-El- Kabir Sallah Durbar in Yola on Tuesday.
According to the monarch, no nation can develop when its educational sector is stagnant.
“If we really agree that the youths of today are the leaders of tomorrow, then we must collectively find solution to the educational problems in the country. Let me use this opportunity to appeal to both Federal Government and the members of ASUU, to find lasting solution to this avoidable strike for the sake and progress of our children as the leaders of tomorrow,’’ he said.
On insecurity, the royal father urged his people to live in peace with one another and assist government in maintaining peace and stability.
He stressed that government alone cannot protect the lives and property of its citizenry without the support of the people.
“I, therefore, call on the good people of the state, irrespective of their differences, to support government’s effort toward ensuring security,’’ he said. (NAN)
