Tertiary institution workers in Plateau State have vowed to continue their strike, accusing the state government of lack of interest in educational development.

The workers of the seven state-owned tertiary institutions under the aegis of Joint Union of Plateau Tertiary Institutions, who have been on strike since April 23, are, among others, demanding improved infrastructure and more teaching and non-teaching staff in their institutions.

Chairman of the union, Mr Paul Dakogol, told our correspondent in Jos on Wednesday that since they embarked on strike, the state government had refused to yield to their demands.

He said, “We have not heard anything from the government since the strike began. I don’t know whether they are insensitive or not, because it appears nobody cares about education in this country. The last time we heard anything from the government was before the May 29 inauguration, when they wrote to us, asking us to call off the strike for the sake of inauguration. Can you imagine that? Not even for the sake of the students who are mostly affected anytime there is a strike. So, we simply ignored the letter and since then, nothing has come from them again".
