Mr Ogbinaka, who disclosed this while being interviewed in Channels Television’s programme, Sunrise Daily, said if the union relent now, whatever gains it has achieved, would be lost.
He said, “As at 2009 the agreement was signed, it was an agreement that started since when Obasanjo was Head of states. The federal government was moving to Abuja and a lot of government properties were wasting away. It was thought that if it were giving to the universities they’ll be able to generate fund from that.
