LAGOS – The Federal Government has been urged to take necessary actions so as to end the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.

Coordinator, foundation of People With Disabilities (PWDs), Kehinde Oshilaja, said this on Tuesday during the annual sustainability fund for the aged in Lagos.

Oshilaja maintained that it was high time the Federal Government and ASUU resolved their differences and ended the age-long strike.

“Let all concerned go to a round table and resolve the issue within the shortest possible time, because the issue is dragging more than necessary. Please, without wasting time, the Federal Government should provide money for them and settle all the differences”, Oshilaja said.

He also appealed to the Lagos State government to find alternative work and means of livelihood for the Okada riders that the government intends to ban from September 1 as is being speculated.

The provision of alternative means of livelihood, according to him, would further reduce unemployment among Okada riders.

Oshilaja equally appealed to the local government area across the country to create an avenue whereby aged people would be incorporated into the monthly payment system, where at least each of them would be given stipends of at least N10,000 monthly for their upkeep.
