Speaking to our correspondent in Abuja, Ibrahim said, “We suspended the strike for a period of two months. This is to give the government a window of opportunity to meet all the demands. After the two months, we will meet again and have a review.”

The unions embarked on a strike in March 2022 shortly after the commencement of the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
