Cable TV Operators Call On FG, ASUU To End Strike



Association of Cable Operators of Nigeria (ACON) has called on the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resolve their differences and end the lingering strike action in the interest of the nation.

In a statement issued at the end of its quarterly conference held at the Popular Broadcasting Service (PBS), Aba and signed by Kunle Osisanya –Afolabi and Kalada Wilson, Chairman and General Secretary, respectively, ACON lamented that the ongoing strike action has done incalculable harm to the country’s education sector and should be called off.

“The Association wishes to lend its voice to appeal to the federal government as well as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to as a matter of urgency resolve their differences in the lingering strike action so that schools can resume and take our children off the streets.”

The group posited that the strike action is becoming counter-productive on both sides and has taken a huge toll on Nigeria’s education system.

“This strike action is not in the interest of the nation. We therefore advise the federal government and ASUU to yield ground in order to reach an amicable settlement.”

ACON also seized the opportunity to congratulate the host station, PBS, for re-launching its service to the residents of Aba after the recent fire incident that destroyed its building and broadcast equipment.
