A student unionist in Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ogunsanmi Kolade has berated the impatience of students in taking to the streets to resolve issues, stating that diplomacy is the key to peace and unity.
In an online interview with INSIDER, the 300 level student of Mass Communication department politically known as Multiple, detailed the stages of negotiation in students’ crisis resolution known as 3Cs of Aluta.
According to him, consultation, which is the first C, has proven to be the most dependable means in this age of dialogue. He believed that confrontation should only be employed if consultation and consolidation is ineffective.
In his words, “Protest is often not the best option to resolve student crisis. There is something called 3C of Aluta which is Consultation, Consolidation and the last one Confrontation which is the stage that result to protests.”
“Consultation is the most appropriate means to resolve crisis, most especially in this 21st century where you have dialogues and apply diplomacy.
“Consolidation which is the next stage is important because it bring peace, unity and oneness to any matter at that stage.
“Therefore, the last which is Confrontation will be useful if the 1st and 2nd stage has failed and this will result to protest”, he added.
The aspirant for the top seat in the institution’s Student Union further reiterated his commitment to ensure the welfarism of all students and their greater good.
