Ekiti Council of Elders, a non-partisan group, consisting of elder statesmen of Ekiti origin, has urged the feuding parties in the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti to embrace peace.

The council made the request in a communique issued at the end of its meeting held in Ado Ekiti and signed by its Chairman, Prof. Tunde Oluwasanmi, and Standing Committee Chairman, Chief Deji Fasuan.

The elders lamented that the protracted crisis between the Rector of the Polytechnic, Dr Theresa Akande, and the organised labour was affecting the peace in the State.

The Non-Academic Staff Union, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, have been on strike over some unpaid allowances and other issues bordering on welfare of members.

The crisis had led to series of protests which resulted in indefinite closure of the Polytechnic by the management.

The Council stated that, “There is need for all parties to show restraint and understanding until all matters relating to the crisis are settled. We have held three separate meetings with the groups ending with a combined meeting with parties in the dispute.

“We are convinced that there is need for all parties to embrace the ongoing peace parleys for lasting peace to return to the institution that had been affected by negative reports in recent past.

“It is our belief that all the contesting issues can be resolved and we hope to achieve this with the cooperation of all parties,” the council added.

The elders appeal to the students to shelve their persistent protests and show understanding for timely resolution of the crisis.
