However, he stated that the union had an in-depth discussion on a number of issues related to the ongoing strike and its agreement with the Federal Government of Nigeria.

“I am not aware of that. All I know is that we had a meeting and we are going to inform our members. But I don’t know about the suspension of the strike. “ Professor Ogunyemi said.
