“NEC was utterly disappointed in agents of government, especially the minister of Education, for the deliberate falsehood and misrepresentation of facts aimed at scoring cheap political gains”

“In view of so many factors and following extensive deliberations on Government’s response to the resolution of 14th February, 2022. So far, NEC concluded that the demands of the union had not been satisfactorily addressed.
