Group calls for dialogue in tackling industrial conflict

A Non Governmental Organisation, Chaplain Corps and Theological Academy, has called on government and stakeholders in the labour unions to always embrace genuine dialogue in solving industrial conflicts to ensure good governance in the country.

Speaking to newsmen on the organisation’s forthcoming conference on proffering solutions to conflicts, the Commandant General of the chaplain, Rev. Shedrach Udegbulem said industrial conflict is one of the problems affecting good governance in the country.

On the ongoing ASSU strike, the Commandant General appealed to the parties involved to go back to the negotiating table and save the education sector from collapse.

He said, “For the present administration to realise its 7-point agenda, the Millennium Development Goals (MGGs) and vision 202020, it cannot afford to play with the education sector.”

He explained that the forthcoming chaplain conference will provide a platform for stakeholders to brainstorm and proffer solutions to conflicts in the society, adding that it aims at positioning the Chaplain Corps and Theological Academy for greater challenges.
