Osodeke in his reaction to the mandate, said the timeframe is too long, noting that the strike can be suspended in less than two days if the federal government signs the renegotiated agreement.

He said, “Two weeks is too long. The issue of renegotiation has been completed by both sides, which means that one is gone.

“They should just come back to us and say ‘we have agreed, sign it’. That should not take two days,” Osodeke said.
