Dutse explained that the action was to give an opportunity at implementation and be reviewed according to the time lines outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding.
According to him, “arriving at this decision, our union considered the impact of the strike action on the society including parents and students, pleas on the union by the well meaning Nigerians and other stakeholders groups in the sector”.
The President assured Nigerians public that their struggle shall continue to be focused on the survival of Polytechnic education while appreciating the media for their support during the strike period.
Dutse urged Government to give the MoS a chance of implementation particularly as there is a mechanism for monitoring and evaluation embedded in the MoS.
