Some members of JAC from SSANU and NASU who spoke to our correspondent all said they had not been told, adding that a congress should be held before the strike was stopped.

A former chairman of SSNAU, UNILAG, Mr. Oriwaye Adefolalu, said the SSANU and NASU JAC had been misled by the strike they had begun to call off, to pressure the federal government to fulfill its constitutional duties. without taking their members to their respective departments.

He said: “I’m not the kind of person who can cheat you, there are records, SSANU’s incumbent leadership is not truthful. At first I thought they didn’t know what they were doing, but they do.

“The only thing they are after is their personal gain. The situation is getting worse every moment. I am 100% convinced that the suspension of the strike was staged by Education Minister Adamu Adamu to save his job. What Adamu did was wash and grease their hands.”
