He also said the directive and deadline given by the minister for Nigerian university teachers to go back to work was nothing of a threat to the lecturers.

Ogbinaka stated that government’s resorting to threat rather than implementing of their agreements further confirmed the lack of sincerity to fulfill it’s side of the obligation to resolved the lingering ASUU strike.

In this interview, Ogbinaka also said Nyesom Wike’s deadline date of December 4th for compulsory re-opening of universities is curious as it coincides with date chosen for the burial of Dr. Festus Iyayi, who was killed in a auto accident caused by the convoy of the Kogi State governor, Captain Idris Wada.
