Parents and guardians in Kogi State have again appealed to the state governor, Captain Idris Wada to use his good offices to resolve the crisis leading to the ongoing four months old strike by the teachers in the public primary schools in the state.
They said they were fed up with the situation, which they said had taken a huge toll not only on them but also on the education sector in the state. They said they could no longer fold their hands to watch the future of their children truncated.
One of them, Mr. Abubarka Danjuma, who spoke during a phone in programme with the Radio Nigeria Prime FM in Lokoja, the state capital called on the state government to stop toying with future of the children who he called ‘leaders of tomorrow.’
The pupils on their part decried the development. They said staying idle or doing other things when their counterparts who are attending private schools are in schools was not to their best interest.
The duo of Abdulrahman Mamud and Beatrice Johnson who are in primary six told National Mirror that they were last been in school since April when they had their second term holiday.
