ASUU: Human Rights Consultant, Chuks Iwunoh, Berates FG, ASUU over Lingering Strike Action
…Describes Action as a Breach of the Fundamental Human Rights of Youths to Education
A US-trained human rights consultant, Mr Chuks Peter Iwunoh has berated both the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the lingering strike action by the university lecturers describing it as ‘unconscionable’.
He said that failure of both parties to reach an agreement since February 14 when the industrial action by ASUU commenced “amounts to a grievous breach of the fundamental human rights of the affected youths” and called on both parties to make sacrifices and reach a compromise in order not to totally destroy what little value is left of the nation’s education system.
Mr Iwunoh who is a member of International Institute of Professional Security (IIPS), trained human rights consultant from the US Institute of Diplomacy and Human Rights, Washington DC and President/Founder of Impact Alliance for Peace and Humanitarian Development (IAPHD), said no other nation in the world closes down almost its entire university system in such circumstances for such a long time and in multiple times except Nigeria, describing the situation as “disruptive and destructive” to the youths and human capital development of the nation.
“The lingering strike action poses serious security risk to the nation as a good number of the affected students could be exposed to societal vices and crime.
“So, sacrifices must be made; compromises must be reached; our universities must reopen in earnest for the sake of our children”, he said.
