  • Hmmm, I think d President has taken a bold step. But d question is; will dis make Asuu 2 calloff d STRIKE?

  • If the sacking of the minister of edu will end the strike is a welcome development. the president should also look at the finance minister, they should call off the strike for God sake. Nigeria is not poor,we are a blessed country,okay just imagine Ngeria released 50,000pounds to purchase golden iphone to celebrate her 53yrs independent.
