Meanwhile, The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari for backing the Kaduna state government's plan to sack 22,000 school teachers, Daily Post reports.
Buhari speaking at a special retreat of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), admitted it was no longer a secret that the education sector needed a revamp.
NAIJ.com gathered that chairman of Joint Research and Allied Institutions Sector Unions, (JORAISU) and General Secretary of NASU, Comrade Peters Adeyemi briefing newsmen on behalf of the affected unions, said that the endorsement of the mass sack by government that pledged to create jobs was most unfortunate.
The group said: “We condemn the President’s endorsement of the mass sack. How can a President that promised to create jobs turn around to kill jobs? We have stated this we will not accept these sacks because it did not follow due process.”
