Aare Onakakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams has condemned the extension of strike action by another 12 weeks by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The traditional leader told the Federal Government that the future of the youths was being toyed with.
Adams spoke in Lagos yesterday at his 52nd birthday ceremony.
The chief expressed concern over the government’s failure to end recurring industrial action over the years.
“Nigerian students cannot withstand another strike for the next 12 weeks”, he warned.
Adams urged the authorities to address the issues facing the education sector and handle them properly.
“I feel bad whenever I see that university students are still at home. This affects their thinking and portends grave danger to us as a nation.”
Adams said he’ll continue to touch lives positively and urged the Yoruba to promote their religion, tradition and culture.
“There is a clear difference between the three but they are all very key to our identity as Omo Odua.”
