Parents decry incessant strikes in FCT public schools

A cross section of parents in Gwagwalada Area Council, FCT has decried the incessant strikes in public schools, saying it is depriving their children the right to education.

Mr Yakubu said all concerned parties should proffer lasting solutions to the issue of incessant strikes by granting the request of teachers for the children to go back to class.

The parents in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Abuja, described the industrial actions as unfortunate and shameful for the sector.

NAN reports that the Nigerian Union of Teachers, NUT, FCT Chapter,  had on Monday directed its members across the six area councils to embark on an indefinite industrial action.

Also, Aishat Sule, a petty trader and mother of five said she was excited knowing that the holiday was over, only for her hope to be dashed after hearing that LEA primary schools teachers are on strike.
