The union also asked Nigerians to hold President Buhari accountable if the educational system is engulfed in another strike crisis, citing the Federal Government's perceived irresponsibility in addressing two out of eight issues in the last nine months.
The Ibadan Zone of the union announced this during a press conference on Thursday at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, addressed by the zonal coordinator, Prof Oyebamiji Oyegoke.
