Speaking to newsmen in Jos Jonah Gworu President of Vwang Development Association VDA and Hon. Mathias Pam secretary respectively said if after all is said and done , and solution is still far off , the proprietor of KKU should formerly approach the State Government for intervention and not the Chairman of the Governing Council Prof.Ochapa Onazi.
The duo argued that the State Government can create all the enabling environment and encourage COCIN and it's host Community to resolve their differences by implementing the condition of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) adding that COCIN came to Vwang Community to demand for land to build KKU not Plateau State Government.
They further said the land where Karl Kum University was built was donated by Vwang Community to COCIN and MoU was signed between the donor and the recipient without the State Government involvement .
VDA also advised COCIN to immediately set the machinery in motion for the review of the status of the KKU in line with global best practices and to continued with the process it has started with the host Community toward resolving the impasse .
The Community further insist on strict adherence to established channels of communication, by all appointees of the institution, especially heards of unit, BoT, Governing Council and the vice Chancellor noting that the Church should assume responsibility and address issues at stake as they have no MoU with Prof. Elias Bogoro, Onazi or the Plateau State Government.
