He said some of them are contemplating pulling out from the strike in the interest of their students.
The lecturer further explained that “we have discovered that the federal government is not sincere about resolving the lingering strike and, on our part, we have no issues with Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s led government.
“What is left for us now, is to localise our struggle, approach the state government with our demands and if the government meet up our demands, we will not hesitate to call off the strike.
He maintained that everybody in this country knows how the Buhari administration paid a nonchalant attitude toward education.
He said the Nigerian masses are watching and waiting for the day of reckoning whereby they will repay this administration for destroying every sector including education which is the bedrock of any societal development.
