Nigeria Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has apologized to striking lecturers for failing to respond to their demands on time.
The Minister made the appeal at a reconciliatory meeting in Abuja organized by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige.
In a statement presented by his permanent secretary, he said:
- NIMASA: Nigeria, Japan sign exchange notes on High-Speed boat to reinforce Deep Blue Project
- CJN: What my late father said about Justice Ariwoola, Shina Peller
- Landlords who rent houses to Yahoo boys may spend 15 years in jail, EFCC declares
“We want to let you know that whatever sins the Ministry had committed before should be forgiven. We have repented and we will not sin anymore. We want you to see us as partners in progress.
“It is in that spirit of forgiveness of the just ended Ramadan fast that we feel that we fixed the meeting to discuss and resolve the issues.”
Mallam Adamu Adamu suggested a new round of negotiations to be reopened.
