The Emir of Zaria in Kaduna State, Shehu Idris, has described the feud between the federal government and Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, as a huge setback to education, national growth and development.
In his Sallah message to his subjects on Tuesday, Idris urged both parties to shift grounds on the issues for the education and growth of future generations.
“The lingering problem has a negative consequence on the lives of our children and those yet unborn; all parties must make quick compromises and ensure peace,” he said.
The Emir also renewed his earlier call on both the federal and state governments to expedite action to fulfil the promises of completing the Zaria water project.
He also called for the construction of additional road networks in Zaria, Tudun-Wada and Sabon-Gari.
The monarch pointed out that the roads in those areas were very bad and required urgent attention.
He charged his subjects to sustain the prevailing peace in the state to enable the government to execute more projects for a better society.
