Prayer sessions for God’s intervention over the pro-longed nationwide strike were organized by the Taraba State University Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
Reports have it that Christian and Muslim members of the union held separate prayer sessions at different venues to solicit for God’s intervention in the industrial action and other internal issues peculiar to the institution.
Speaking to journalists at the end of the prayer sessions, the former Vice Chairman of the Union, Mbave Garba, said that what was happening to public universities in the country was not ordinary, hence the need to turn to God.
“Our members have gone for two months without salary and without any explanation for such action from the Taraba government and university management,” he said.
Garba prayed for God to touch the hearts of all the individuals and groups that are responsible for the non-resolution of these issues, so as to bring sanity into the system.
