Ologbondiyan tweeted: “It doesn’t make a difference the quantity of gatherings supported by the Buhari Administration and the APC to request that the People groups President, Atiku to acknowledge the result of fixed February 23 presidential decision.

“My recommendation to APCites is to restore our stolen order or go to the court.”

The representative talked after twelve presidential competitors praised Buhari.

Acting under the aegis of Gathering of Presidential Hopefuls and Ideological groups for Good Administration, the gathering said at a news meeting in Abuja, that the triumph was merited.

“Presently that the competitor of the APC, President Buhari has been re-chosen, we have no misgivings tolerating his triumph.

“We ask the applicant of the People groups Majority rule Gathering, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to ignore the exhortation of those soliciting him to challenge the result from the race in court.

“To obtain the well known aphorism in Africa, two defendants can’t resolve their disparities in court and come back to indistinguishable house from siblings. President Buhari and Alhaji Abubakar are siblings.

“We unequivocally encourage Alhaji Abubakar to drop the lawful choice in communicating his complaints. This is reliable with the direction of some good natured Nigerians, including Boss Olisa Agbakoba and General Ibrahim Babangida.

“We likewise trust that the previous VP has influenced an imprint among Nigerians of methods who to have emphatically affected their networks.

“We think he has much more to add to creating humankind and advancing harmony and advancement in our country, even without holding any political office.

“At his age, he should now maintain a strategic distance from any activity and expressions fit for fanning the coals of conflict, contradiction and vicious direct. Nigeria is more noteworthy than any close to home or class intrigue,” he said.

As the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, make arrangements to meets the Federal Government on Monday (today).Some students have shown concerns over the planned industrial action by ASUU

9jaflair reports that the  FG through the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has scheduled to meet with the leadership of the union over the predominate strike action.

Recollect that the union had on June 19, threatened to embark on another strike over the alleged deliberate refusal of the Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr Ahmed Idris, to pay the salaries and remittance of check-off dues of over 1,000 staff for 13 months.

The ASUU chairman University of Jos, Dr Lazarus Maigoro who made the revelation in a press statement accused the AGF of fanning the embers of discord between the Federal Government and the Union.

In a move to forestall the industrial action, the Federal Government would meet with the union 2pm today to look at the unending issues.

Recollect  that the union had on March 23, 2020, embarked on an industrial action which lasted for over 9 months, the longest of its strike in 10 years over the inability of the Federal Government to address the issues and implement some agreement the two parties entered years ago.

Consisting thea fresh development, some students spoke with 9jaflair to register their grievances over incessant strike actions in Nigerian Universities.

A 300 level student of the Benue State University, Makurdi, Miss Martha Onuh, lamented the current move by ASUU, urging the union to put the interest of the students at heart.

She said, “After staying at home for a while during academic calendar year in 2020, you think I will be happy hearing that ASUU may still embark on strike? Sometimes I don’t even care to know who is at fault and who is right. The Federal Government and the union should put our interest at heart.

“I applied for 4 years course, this is my 5th year in the university yet I’m in 300 level. It’s bad,”she lamented.

Similarly, James a final year student of the University of Nigeria, Nnsuka in a chat with our correspondent, appealed to both parties to find a means of settling their differences without industrial action.

“Most times, ASUU would say that they are fighting for the benefit of the students but at the end, the students who they claim that they are fighting for are the ones losing.

“Is there no other way for a union to register its grievances without a strike action? The incessant industrial action by the union, to me has crippled Nigerian universities,” he added.

Also, a Master’s Degree student in the university of Abuja, Adebayo Micheal urged the Federal Government and ASUU to settle their differences once and for all.

He said, “We can not be talking about strike every year. It’s quite shameful that our education system is never stable. I think even if it would take them one whole year to settle their differences and end it forever, it would be better for the students.

We await the result of today’s meeting by the union with FG.

Oh my loving Desdemona

Time could not wait for you

Your owners procastinate your life

But could not procrastinate your death

Delay caught you by the throat

Even when your owners were ready

Ready to save your life

Mr A was the problem

But Mr B cure was administered to you

Different pins went into your skin daily

These wicked vets., refused to allow your owners know about the nature of your sickness

These vets became useful fools

Even when the nature of your sickness was discovered

It was already too late

Too late to revive you

For the cold fingers already held you by the throat

For the sickness has eaten you deep

Deep beyond measures

The last pin entered your skin

Its content deliberating life or death

The last pin entered into your skin and its content sent you packing

Out of these beautiful world

Oh no the youngest owner watched

Watched the world crumble

For our beautiful Desdemona breath her last

Breath her last; at the same time tears dropped

Out of our last born’s eyes.
