NASU National President, Makolo Hassan, in an interview with Channels Politics Today, said there is no going back on the demonstrations, even though there were hopes that the government may wade in and prevent the protest scheduled to be held in their branches nationwide.

According to him, after Tuesday’s protest, the unions will take the demonstrations to Abuja.

The NASU chief said, “No, apart from the failed meeting of Thursday, we have not heard anything from anybody and our members across the country met in their various branches today and they will hit the ground running as from tomorrow.

“And like you rightly said, we will appraise it by next week Thursday. On the 18th, we are going to do the national protest in Abuja and after the national protest, if nothing is done, we will get back to the table.

“The two unions will provide the next line of action and the next line of action will be.”
