According to the statement: “We thank the President and many Nigerians for supporting the tough choice we have made in the interest of the future of our children”
Qualified teachers who are competent in their subject areas and equipped with the skills to teach and inspire pupils are crucial to delivering decent education”
“We are witnessing the triumph of reason over sentiment. We owe our children unfettered access to decent education in the public system, and we shall not relent in delivering it” the statement explained.
