The SSANU President, Mohammed Ibrahim disclosed this in Abuja in an interview with journalists over the weekend.

The Union President Also said their demands were not new, the government are fully aware of their demands which have been lingering for over 11 years. 


The Union has an agreement with the Federal Government in the year 2009 which involves the payments of their allowances but have not been met up till today.


He said they have more than enough reasons to suspend their strike since they felt the Federal government were sincere and the timelines given.


The Union still believes miracles could still happen but most of their members are agitated and are under a lot of pressure to resume back strike.
