The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, has said the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, does not speak well of our democracy.
Kukah made this known at the signing of a peace accord ahead of the Osun State gubernatorial election.
He stressed that Nigerian leaders must understand that without the universities giving opportunities for academic energy, it is impossible for the nation’s democracy to grow.
The Bishop urged Nigerians to participate in the electioneering process, adding that the urgency of fixing the nation is tied to the process of governance adopted in the constitution.
