According to the angry staffs and lecturers the government has been owing them 6 Months of salary and now they are expected to resume next week. They also demander that the school should be converted into a federal university if the state university can’t afford to take care of the well being of staffs and students of the school.

Furthermore, they stated that without appropriate funding the school can not be able to acquire the equipments required for the reopening of the school.
Recall that the federal government has released a guideline for safe reopening of schools and before any institution will be allowed to resume they must have acquired it all and receive approval from the government.
I also use this medium to call on the state government to please pay the staffs and lecturers of the school so that students can return to school.
