Today's Headlines: Buhari Begs ASUU, Kano’ll Support Tinubu’s Presidential Ambition - Speaker

Embrace dialogue, Buhari begs ASUU, others

The President, Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has appealed to the leadership and members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities and other unions within and outside the university system to always give peace a chance and embrace dialogue in resolving all complaints they have with the government.

Buhari spoke at the 36th convocation of the University of Ilorin Kwara State on Saturday against the backdrop of a strike threat earlier given by various unions in academic institutions.

The president who is also the Visitor to the university said the unions should realise that dialogue was always better than conflict.

ASUU had given the Federal Government a November 1st ultimatum to accede to its demands.

Represented by Professor Ignatius Onimawu of the National University Commission, the President said, “No one gains from crisis. While government alone cannot solve all challenges facing society, this administration is willing to listen to complaints and alternative points of view to managing a situation.

He spoke at the inauguration of the Tinubu Support Group and the state steering committees of the TSG in Abuja on Saturday.

“My purpose is to kick-start the journey that will take us to the Villa by God’s grace with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the number one citizen of Nigeria,” he said.

Drama, confusion over bandits’ abduction, release of Dodo of Wawa in Niger State

Drama, intrigues and confusion seem to surround the abduction and release of the Dodo of Wawa, (District Head) Dr Mahmoud Ahmed Aliyu in Borgu Local Government area of Niger state, who was allegedly released from the hands of bandits five days ago (Tuesday, 20th of October, 2021).

The monarch was kidnapped from his palace by bandits on the 4th of September, 2021 and remained with them for 47 days.

The gunmen stormed his palace on motorcycles, dressed in military uniforms at about 10pm in the night and allegedly whisked him away after retiring to his quarters. They took him in the presence of his family to an unknown location without hurting any member of his household.

But, after five days in their clutches, the district Head of Wawa was said to have been released freely and returned back home by his abductors unhurt.
