Hon. Dayo Bush-Alebiosu, a former member of the House of Representatives, has urged the academia to always have true representations in policy-making, so as to address THE root cause of incessant strikes by their unions.
He made this remark while speaking with our correspondent after the Town Hall meeting with APC leaders, delegates and members at the party secretariat in Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area (LCDA) in Lagos State, which he attended to solicit the support of the party.
Bush-Alebiosu represented Kosofe Federal Constituency at the House of Representative between 2007 and 2015, and he is aspiring to return to the same seat in 2023.
The former Chairman of House Committee on Treaties and Agreements, who didn’t hide his passion for the development of education to address challenges in the nation, decried the lingering disagreement between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
ACCORDING TO DAYO BUSH AS HE IS FONDLY CALLED,
“You cannot solve a problem without getting to the root of the problem. The first thing to do is run a diagnosis OF what the issue is, and have a sit down. I have never seen war resolve any issue. At the end of the day, you still have to come back to the table.
“This is where the excellence of policy-making comes to place. It is important for the academics to have true representation at the level of policy-making, that way, they will be able to push a lot of REFORMS .
“As a nation, we cannot be serious without talking ABOUT education. I am passionate about education as it is the key that unlocks every problem whether medical, engineering and others,”.
According to him, no nation can talk about development without a FOCUS ON education.
On his aspiration, the aspirant said he was one of the best legislators the country had ever produced, adding that he knew where the shoe pinched the people.
He said: “I have come to seek the support of our delegates at the PRIMARILY next week. I want their absolute support.
“I was born here and I understand the problems, issues and challenges in Kosofe as a whole. I come to let them know I am the best man for the job. If I had not done well, the mammoth crowd at this gathering would not have come to WARMLY receive me.”
The Executive Chairman of Ikosi-Isheri LCDA, Princess Samiat Bolanle Bada, noted that peace had returned to the party in the council.
Bada promised to deliver votes in the LCDA for all APC candidates in the 2023 elections including Bush-Alebiosu.
The event was attended by several party leaders and members.
