The President of the United Church of Christ, HEKAN, Rev Amos Kiri has said the prolong strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) if not settled soon might contribute to the rise in criminal activities, because students that are used to spending time reading and doing other activities in school from morning to evening are now left idle at home and in the streets.
The Clergy asserted this while speaking to the media at the 56th Annual Convention 2022 of the Church with theme” Prepare for Eternity” in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, the over stay at home might not be too good in some communities, saying, “An idle man is a devil’s workshop.”
Therefore, he called on ASUU and the Federal Government to fast track dialogue to end the lingering strike.
