Biodun echoed this to vanguard when asked on the federal government’s directives on the resumption of academic section as he stated that the union’s strike will continue until their demands are met.
He was quoted as saying:
“We started out industrial action before the outbreak of Coronavirus disease in the country. All the issues we raised are yet to be addressed.
“The government is free to open their schools, just like our members are also entitled to their dues.
“As we speak, our members are being owed between three to six months of salaries. The government’s so-called fund saving platform, the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, IPPIS, is a colossal failure.
