Describing them as “Judas”, he said the saboteurs are responsible for the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 over the federal government’s inability to meet its demands bordering on the funding of universities as well as salaries and allowances of lecturers.

Several meetings between ASUU and the federal government have ended in a deadlock.

Last week, the strike entered its eighth month – a development that has left students, parents and other stakeholders frustrated.

Speaking with Arise News TV on Wednesday, Bello expressed concern over “our children’s future that is being toyed with”.

He accused the “saboteurs within this administration” of instigating the strike, adding that the culprits will soon be revealed.

“I am deeply concerned about our children’s future that is being toyed with. I tackled the issue of education strikes in Kogi state and there is nothing such as strikes.

Unfortunately, this is part of the saboteurs within this administration and outside.
Let me admonish the NANS, do not take laws into your hands,” the governor said.

“Everyone including Bola Tinubu and the president is deeply concerned and what should have been done is to remove the political aspects from ASUU and at the appropriate time, we are going to point out to you those that are responsible.

“There are areas we need to work on but in every system, there are saboteurs. There are Judas and we have them abound in this APC administration of President Muhammadu Buhari — from the inner caucus to the outside.

“But that is not to say there are no areas to be improved upon in this government. But the fact is that there are saboteurs. Still, in the midst of all of that, the country is moving on. The president continues to improve our infrastructure.”

Obasanjo also told leaders of the various religions in Nigeria not to allow politicians wreck Nigeria, saying the entire country would regret it if such is allowed.

Obasanjo stated this when the new President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Most Reverend Daniel Okoh, visited him at his Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) Penthouse residence, Abeokuta, Ogun State.

In a statement Wednesday by his Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo pleaded that politicians should be made more responsible by religious leaders.

“If you stand on the truth, you stand for justice and equity, it is then the politicians will not be able to mess us around,” Obasanjo said, adding that “if we do not watch it, the politicians will wreck this country and we’ll all regret it.”

The former President wondered if there is anywhere else the nation can look for salvation, if not from God through the religious leaders.

Obasanjo described as a mistake of the past, especially in Christendom, claims that ‘politics is not for the righteous’.

“Now, if we take the righteous away from politics, and we leave politics to the unrighteous, the unrighteous will smear the righteous with the unrighteousness that they will carry into politics,” he said.

Obasanjo said the failure to be careful with the 2023 elections may break Nigeria.

“And in the next election, if we do not watch it, it may make or break Nigeria. And I pray that it will make Nigeria,” Obasanjo was quoted as saying.

Come Saturday, October 1, 2022, the Lagos State Labour Party in collaboration with independent support groups, civil liberty organizations, social crusaders and fans of OBI-DATTI presidential project, will throng the streets of Lagos in a solidarity march to galvanize support for Mr. Peter Obi and Sen.

Peter Obi’s strong knowledge of Nigeria’s myriad of problems and his willpower to take the challenges head-on, especially the escalating security challenges and almost comatose economy have given him an edge over other candidates.

Another high point of Peter Obi’s choice as the next Nigeria’s leader is his geo-political zone. Political observers and men of good conscience across the country, irrespective of ethnicity or religion have continued to support the emergence of a South-easterner as the next President of the nation to douse the tension of marginalization of the Igbos.
