The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Minister, Muhammad Bello has appealed to the FCT wing of the Nigerian Union of Teachers, NUT to call off its ongoing strike.
The Minister made the appeal on Thursday following the FCT Security Committee meeting for the month of November.
Bello said the continuous industrial action was playing into the hands of elements determined to cripple the country.
The Minister, however, urged Administrators at the Area Council, religious and traditional leaders to dialogue with the teachers.
Recall that the FCT chapter of the NUT commenced a five-day warning strike on November 18 over the non-payment of their promotion salary arrears, lack of teachers’ upgrade and insecurity, among others.
